This poem was an experiment. I took Robert Frost’s Acquainted with the Night, retaining his end rhymes and sonnet form, then played with it a bit. I wanted to work with the spacing between words and building smaller poems into the whole.
The two lines act as links between phrases (my attempt to show that they are tied into one of the smaller poems.).
I’d appreciate feedback and critiques. I’m trying to break down my work and experiment, so I’d like to hear what works and doesn’t.
