double-title poem (a form invented by the author) has two
five line stanzas. Titles are limited to one word each.
The first title reads into the poem or states its opening
motif. The first word in stanza two is identical to the
first title and is italicized. At least one word in the
last two lines of the second stanza rhymes with the exit
Poems may be metrical or open. If open, lines should be as even in length as pos-sible. End rhyme is to be avoided, but internal rhyme is welcome. Punctuation is inventive, with use of the Dickinson dash to create pauses—and disconnects.
Double-title poems respect both locality and spooky action at a distance. By treating language as both particle and wave double-titles aim to provide the aesthetic pleasure of both fixed and open form.
