a Noble attempt pt2.
An interesting way of formatting your poems is in the way that Anne Sexton did in her poem 'The Double Image'.
She has numbered sections as seen below.


I am thirty this November.
You are still small, in your fourth year.
We stand watching the yellow leaves go queer,
flapping in the winter rain,
falling flat and washed. And I remember
mostly the three autumns you did not live here.
They said I’d never get you back again.
I tell you what you’ll never really know:
all the medical hypothesis
that explained my brain will never be as true as these
struck leaves letting go."

It really does remind me of A MOTHER'S STRUGGLE WITH ADDICTION.
What do you think?
What do you take from this?
I know for one, that someone out there took a lot from this poem. They took all 7 sections in fact! crazy!
