Breaking Through

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.
