The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Quatrain.Fish



Description
Very short poetry is often treated like very long poetry—as if only cocksure geniuses are allowed to present it to the public so don’t you dare waste our time. Bollocks, we say. An excellent short poem is the purest poetic joy. So: we’re on the hunt.
The rules for Quatrain.Fish are simple: All poems are of four lines or fewer.
One is good. Two is good. Three is good. Four is good. Five is right out. Try Cinquain.Fish.
(Please don’t, say, rewrite a seven-line poem to make it three. Poems are at their best in their native shape. Respect your poem’s shape. Form, as you know, means shape.)
