Triversen

A Triversen is a stanza developed by William Carlos Williams based on Native American forms. A Triversen is one sentence broken into three parts as lines in a stanza. Each line is a single phrase or image or concept and the sentence is broken by where it feels natural to pause for breath.

For me
there can be
only time.

Asphodel
between here and hell,
tell me why I fell.
