At Capriole, we were told to invent a new form. I did and called the form "descending poem"--poem of nine lines of free verse with three stanzas of four lines, three lines, and two lines, in that order. The first four lines of the poem must introduce the subject. The next three lines should show conflict or tension which is overturned or dissolved in the third stanza. The overall feel of the poem is one of surrender or letting go.
