I have to admit: I’m not all that fond of Trapped. I’m egotistical enough to want to include two of my own poems this month, but I hesitated before picking this one.
One of the rules for the blog’s poetry month posts is that poems had to be published somewhere. The published, original poems of which I’m proudest have already appeared on the blog. I really like last year’s Vienna and [Colors, where they existed].
As for Trapped, well, I like some of the phrasing and imagery, but I had to fight the urge to rewrite some or all of it. Eh.
