Curious Pain

Standard

Hazelnut shriveled

Rattling faintly in the shell

Hull with little meat

Writing exercise (from Kim Addonizio’s Ordinary Genius, p. 148-155):  What is your “pain-body”—that negative field that feeds on and tries to increase your pain? Meditate for a few minutes to give that pain-body a physical form. Draw the image. Then write a poem. If you’re up for it, try a pantoum. (I was only up for a haiku this evening.)

That’s it in a nutshell. (Har-har.)
