Dirty Sestina

Dirty Sestina would be a great band name. It references the poetic form sestina which features sestets and repeating words. The poem ends with a three line tercet. University of Northern Iowa professor Vince Gotera offers a brief explanation and example of the sestina on his website.

PS: The picture is Sestina flatware, by Oneida.
