19/30: Cody-Rose Clevidence

I love today's poem, "King/dom" for its direct and deep engagement with a word's anatomy.


Today I want you to examine and split the juiciest words in your poem to create mini-contrapuntals. Use it as a way to consider the duality that is always present in our language.


If you are ever stuck for a topic or jumping off point, feel free to start with the same title as our inspiration poem! Likely you'll end up changing it, but it can help me avoid the "on-ramp" part of drafting.
