The damage I must have caused

The night I fired the Velveeta cannon

Into the open window of the corn chip factory.

A free verse poem has no set pattern for line or stanza length. Rhyme is not used, or it is used sparingly. The line length and the rhythm or the lines are dictated by the natural rhythm of speech or other concerns such as emphasis on a particular word, image, or idea.
