In a previous post (on 2/2/2222), I shared a link to dozens of Fibs;
today I offer a Fib variation -- this time with 7 lines.
Daughter of a statistics professor, poet A. E. Stallings is no stranger to mathematics. Here is a link to several dozen of her poems posted by the Poetry Foundation -- and this link leads to a posting of her poem "Sine Qua Non" in this blog. Recently I discovered Stallings 2012 collection Olives (a sample is available here) and in it, "Four Fibs." Deviating from the six-line poem that is often called a Fib, Stallings' poems have seven lines -- with syllable-counts of 1,1,2,3,5,8, and 13 syllables: here is a sample.
from Four Fibs by A. E. Stallings

Eavesdropping Adam heard her say
To the snake-oil salesman she was not born yesterday.
Here in the archives of the Cortland Review (where "Four Fibs" first appeared) is more of Stallings' work, including the other three Fibs.
