PAD Day 11: Sonnet and Anti-sonnet

Today's dual prompts from Poetic Asides and NaPoWriMo: (1) write a sonnet or an "anti-form" poem, and (2) write a "bop".  Even though the bop is derived from the sonnet, I thought it best not to combine these two form-related prompts. I will try to write a bop later, but for now, here is my sonnet. I actually wrote it as a free-verse poem last night but re-wrote it in form for today's prompt.

And here is an "anti-sonnet", so to speak, just for fun:

Sonnet for the Taciturn

I don't
do form.
I won't
get warm
to rhyme
or beat,
my crime,

But hey,
I'll try
not cry -
