Speaking as a Teacup
Tomorrow I'll talk about 'voice' in poetry at High Calling Blogs and invite us to try out 'mask' for next week's poetry prompt; that just means taking on the voice of someone or something other than yourself. Think of it as a small exercise in fiction writing, taking on a character...
I remember traveling
in his suitcase, white athletic
socks stuffed in my belly to keep
me from breaking, rocking 'midst
clouds, and your hand's first
touch bringing me to birth
on that wooden table,
and your lips.
