Power of the Pattern

Gut to gut.

petrujviljoen

the need to hurt; the being hurt
get out, get out! How to get out
this entirely hurting place
in such a state so to continue

get out, get out! How to get out
unpluralling the negation
in such a state so to continue
keeping on and on withdrawing

unpluralling the negation
the recurrant hurting, smarting
keeping on and on withdrawing
undeserving of living

the recurrant hurting, smarting
suffering thuds, the silence dull
undeserving of living
of withholding from inflicting.

First draft for Dverse Poetry Form Month of the Pantoum.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.
