every word matters

To state the obvious, I've put my haiku blog on the back burner to focus on other initiatives, including building The STANDOUT Professor community. I don't expect to resume regular posts here, but I do hope to share a poem every now and then.


The poem below, entitled "every word matters" is a tanka, though the line breaks don't follow the traditional 5-7-5-7-7 syllable pattern. I wrote it a few weeks ago in response to a prompt that called for a piece based on the last words you remember someone saying to you.


Couldn’t agree more.

Solidarity. Union.

Just couldn’t agree?

Shadow. Rejection. 

Seek more union?

Couldn’t agree more.
