December 16, 2013 Poetry Comments Off on Cycle 461

Working Notes:

The large and small cycles of my life – those I go through and have gone through – are what inspired “Cycle.” My body is/has been a vessel for the cycle of menstruation and of violence, and those cycles possess an almost unstoppable force that recurs. The poem also reflects on the larger cycle of life – birth to death.
