Revising My Pain-body

“This is a way to play with form, providing a container for your pain-body poem. The exercise is also a way of revising, literally reseeing your material.

“The pantoum is a fifteenth century form from Malaysia that was later taken up by Western writers.”

-Kim Addonizio, “Ordinary Genius”

Don’t let me out

I feel so much safer

Deep in the dark

 

Don’t let me out

These walls are my friends

Deep in the dark

The night shuts me in

 

These walls are my friends

I feel so much safer

The night shuts me in
