I slice the moon curated in summer girls; I name her for a death Goosebones, I’d dream I’d steal the sun made of la-mancha I name her for a death she is mine fragile, heart breaking, I died in April; daisies bone-soft, daddy is to the black bridge the sea the sun fell apart I’m held by love a crèche of the other menstruating roses could not see this my own selfish sea paper-babies supposed born as cancers could not see this; I couldn’t see this. I name her for a death, mine when I can’t forget mine when I do mine when I love her mine where I’m loved. I slice the moon curated in summer girls; I name her for a death she’s mine. © 2021 lucysworks.com All Rights Reserved.
Posted for the dVerse MTB prompt: So today we shall write our poem using any style or meter as long as it contains:
1a. Epiphora (aka Epistrophe or Antistrophe). The end line repeats should for the most part be consecutive, although allowances are made for alternates as well as the use of the repeat word with variance. Employ repetitions with the maxim ‘ too often is too heavy’!
Maybe I cheated, but I wrote this 5/24/2021. It was just sitting in my notes, pretty much homeless, until I saw it fit most of the requirements for the prompt.
I just wasn’t bit by the poetry bug today. Someone put me in poetry prison and read me Anne Sexton.
