New Year Day 1/Houseguest Day 17

I resolved (again) to let it go—yet
she sat down to dine in her dotted nightgown

 

Playing with couplets for the January poetry slam.

  1. This is a really beautiful couplet. I love it, even though I’m not quite sure what’s going on in the scene. Not sure if the actor of the first verb (the person who “Resolved..”) is the “she” that you mention, or a speaker observing her.

    Excellent choice of detail in the nightgown. Very vivid, and the alliteration really enhances it. Also loved the title.

I'd be so happy to hear from you.
