  • DixdeuxFrench for ten-two, is illustrated by Anthony Fusco in Caulkins' Handbook on Haiku and Other Form Poems, 1970 . . . It appears to have developed as an alternative to the Haiku.

    The Dixdeux is:
    • written in any number of tercets. When written in more than one tercet, L3 becomes a refrain.
    • syllabic, with 10-10-2 syllables per line.
    • is unrhymed.
    • titled, unlike the haiku.
    • -------------- Hot Topic by Judi Van Gorder

      an unopened coke sits in closed up truck
      outside the summer temperature rises
      -------------- KABOOM!

      sticky brown liquid spatters upholstery
      meticulous owner finds mess inside
      -------------- KABOOM!

Thanks to Judi Van Gorder of PMO for reseacrhing this.

My Attempt

Thanksgiving Day Football      (Dixdeux)

The aroma of turkey, panoply
of pies, threaten little distraction to
The game.

Living room furniture placed horseshoe style
in front wide-screen keeping kids away from
The game.
