Who are your neighbors? Are you friends with them, barely say hi, or avoid them altogether? Tell us a story — real or invented — about the people on the other side of your wall (or street, or farm, or… you get the point).
Photographers, artists, poets: show us NEXT DOOR.
We’ve been good neighbors for so long now
but I’m tired of your gossiping,
when you put down your own kin
I know it’s not a slip.
When I’m home, do you
do the same thing
*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.

I like your nonet. This is the first one I read. It’s a catchy rhythm and suits the message in the work. Gossip rattles on the brain!
Thank you 🙂
Nonets are a fun challenge to do – and when it came to writing about gossip, the less words the better 🙂
good point and excellent execution!
