Poem #13

How, I wonder,
did you prove susceptible
to my charms — such as they are,
weak and ill-fitting.

Lookee here: a poem that doesn't rhyme!

This one holds special interest for me because of the final punctuation. I could have gone with a question mark, but I chose to go with a period. I take the view that the ", I wonder," brings it out of the interrogative realm and puts it into the declarative realm. Do you agree or disagree?
