Curtains forcing their will
against the wind,
exchanging dreams with
seraphim. The city
drags itself awake on
subway straps; and
I, an alarm, awake as a
rumor of war
lie stretching into dawn
unasked and unheeded.
– Maya Angelou

I remember you enveloped my sunkissed forehead in your twilight shadow whilst gossiping in the shores of Konkan coast, You told me my wild orbs fascinate you more than the sky, I smiled and the photon in your eyes oscillated like the waves of coffee leaves, You adorned my wrist with a lavender corsage and held me close, My lips touched your unbuttoned shirt and I got intoxicated by your long lasting fragrance, Yes, universe played cupid Aein, I can't ask anything more, I'm indebted to your rose pink smooch.
A list poem also called catalogue verse, is simply a list. This could be a list of single words, or it could be a list of sentences. These lists do not necessarily need rhythm or rhyme but they must have a relation to each other, tell a story or offer commentary.

Tell me about the traffic.
Tell me about your boss.
Tell me about the job you’ve been
trying to quit for the past four years.
Tell me the morning is just a townhouse
burning to the ground and
the snooze button is a fire extinguisher.
