I could swear that I recently read about a poetic form that sailors used to compose poems to Saint Christopher. Or Saint Elmo. I don't remember which Saint.
I also don't remember which form, or where I read it.
Was it in Lyric Postmodernisms? Was it in Ecstatic Occasions, Expedient Forms? I looked (using Google books) in those and also in Handbook of Poetic Forms.
And now the cat is barfing.
Got to go...any ideas about a form used by sailors to write poems to a saint?
All help is appreciated.
