Write a poem within a poem.  I don't know what that means either. But try this: write three stanzas about something you hide from other people.  Print out (or copy down) two copies of it.  On the second copy, white out some of the words to create a second poem.  See if you can isolate only those words that if they hang on their own in the air, capture the essence of the thing you are hiding and why.  Place the two versions atop one another or side by side.


2018 shows and workshops announced in January.

Happy holidays!
