two words
then three more

The suggested guidelines for a quincouplet are simple: the title should be one word, the first line should be two words, the second line should be three words.

I used to call these rules, but as a poet, I know how silly it is to ask poets to follow rules.

You can write quincouplets without attributing me or mentioning my name. They are public domain. Intellectual property is intellectual theft.
