stars wash away
act as my hand
Sherrie Talgeri wrote Add in response to Ross Sutherland’s Univocal Challenge.
Ross Sutherland says: ‘Add’ shows just how versatile you can be with a univocal constraint. Writing in fragments like this opens up the constraint in a surprising, different way. There’s a lot going on for such a short poem, which I keep reading both as a love poem, and as something more tragic. It’s that closing image that really gets me: “act as my hand […] stay warm”.
