words carefully chosen
on syllable number
resulting in poems
wherein three syllable
two syllable also
one syllable even
seven syllable words
come equally often.

each
line contains
one single example
of every syllable
word ranging inbetween
one until
six
or
more. every
one's syllable ranges
are assigned randomly.

dice!

Does everybody understand poems
that utilize every quantitative
syllable number with accuracy?
each stanza encompasses syllable
distances within four alternatives

lets witness example twentyseven
where rishi's counselor elaborates
a cramped perspective
: reality.
as rishi converses exclusively
with single syllable
words listen
as
the other
one: rishi's advisor
speaks clusters containing alternative
words having syllable
lengths ranging
from
one
to
four
