So far, one good poem for the semester. A blank-page re-write of a blank-page re-write of an ekphrastic poem. Wanted it to have more than one thing going on, and it’s appropriately complex, with many layers. But there’s a problem.
It makes all the other poems this semester look flat. I really like it, and now I want other poems to come out with that much oomph, but it’s not happening.
Anyways… Keep working.
