This is a form invented by Allpoetry's Streambed

It is a modified Italian Octave  with the following specifications.

The lines are octasyllabic, to be written preferable in iambic tetrameter,
but trochaic tetrameter may be used at the poet's discretion.

A poem consists of exactly two  stanzas, each being an octave.

The rhyme scheme is: abbaccab
