  My Poems  


A nonet by Beverly Stock.

She adjusts her breast on plastic shelf

Cold and hard stretching tissue far

Prepared to take an image

Will it see lumps or bumps

Will tissue be dense

Pray be normal

The pressure



A nonet is a nine line poem. The first line containing nine syllables, the next line has eight syllables, the next line has seven syllables. That continues until the last line (the ninth line) which has one syllable. Nonets can be written about any subject. Rhyming is optional.
