poetry, daily: 9

Writing exercise: Write a poem without the word 'I', without the word 'he', without the word 'she'.

Check out the slender, lovely slip of a poem that is Rae Armantrout's "Second Person".

How about this anthology compiled by C. Dale Young?

Our shadow is our second person.

See you tomorrow.

Oops, I didn't click the links before writing, so as not to be influenced. Only now have I followed them and realised that the idea was maybe to use 'you', whereas I didn't use any subject pronouns whatsoever. Oh well, never mind...
