    Six-Word Poem

    We've all likely heard of the six-word story made famous by Ernest Hemmingway:

    For sale: baby shoes. Never worn.

    So, in keeping with the minimalist theme of Fats Velvet's new thread, how about the six word poem? You can break up the words into however many lines you like, but the poem must contain ONLY six words.

    Here's mine (with all due credit to e.e. cummings):

    a
    leaf
    falls.

    lonely,
    terrible

    evening.
    When will children learn to let their wildernesses burn?
    And love will be new, never cold and vacant.

    Your heart
