“Let Me”
September 2005

Let me live my life
Let me live at last
Let me live my last
Let me my last at life
Let me at last to die
Let me die at last
Let me die at last, my life
You are my life, let me at last: die

This poem was mis-categorized on Deviant Art as “Traditional Fixed Form” poetry. This is an example of some of the word experiments I played with in my poetry. Reorganizing the words in a statement, there are a couple overlapping thoughts that I’ve blended together here, kind of like a Venn Diagram, or perhaps like two colors mixed on a palette. A Word Palette Sandwich.
