Type of Work



This is a little piece of poetry, known as a pantoum. It's not a pure pantoum, as I played with the structure of the sentences a little bit, but the idea is to repeat certain lines throughout the stanzas. It helps to create a scene that maintains unity, and I have found it to be especially good at capturing moments as the form likes to ruminate.
