NaPoWriMo Day 2: Voice

This poem was written in response for NaPoWriMo day two:

we’d like to challenge you to write a poem that plays with voice. For example, you might try writing a stanza that recounts something in the first-person, followed by a stanza recounting the same incident in the second-person, followed by a stanza that treats the incident from a third-person point of view. Or you might try a poem in the form of a dialogue, which necessarily has two “I” speakers, addressing two “you”s. Another way to go is to take an existing poem of yours or someone else’s, and try rewriting it in a different voice. The point is just to play with who is speaking to who and how. (

The Weiner

Tugged up
by the
tail I am
now unstuck
from one
dark sett
to be set
once again
on a badger.
Hoping this time
to avoid
holes, I’m
still glad you’re
on hand
to lend yours
once more
should I need
from a tunnel
