The Brevette, created by Emily Romano consists of a subject (noun), verb, and object (noun), in
this exact order. The verb should show an ongoing action. This is done by spacing out the letters
in the verb. There are only three words in the poem, giving it the title Brevette.

Each of the three words may have any number of syllables, but it is desireable that the poem have
balance in the choice of these words. Unlike haiku, there are no other rules to follow.
