Week 1 – Journal
Reflection and Response
Using the examples from Chapter 5 in your primary text as models, write a poem that incorporates repetition, either as anaphora or otherwise. You might begin by freewriting from a single, repeated word. That word might be “You,” “We,” “If,” or “Who;” it might be “Don’t” or “Please,” but whatever it may be, consider its effect when it becomes the hub for each line of your poem. What does that word evoke as it compounds?
