I’m trying to learn how to write within parameters – how to follow a structure. I told this to one of my friends, and he told me to write a poem about oral sex that had three lines followed by a rhyming couplet. A little specific, if you ask me, but I followed directions.
taste with every hill of the tongue.
inspect intersections of body,
fault lines in earth.
climb down limbs like branches
beneath hands, skin dances
