can body snatchers steal the poetry voice?

November 24, 2009

My self-imposed Mad at My Muse poem-a-day challenge (after a good bit of silence — translation: no writing) has been making me curious. Five or six days in, I’ve noticed something different in my poetry voice. I’m not saying it’s permanent. I’m not saying it’s better or worse. I’ve just noticed something different.

And with this most recent poem draft (posted here at “i am maureen”; leave a comment here if you need the password), I think I figured out what it is. The “I” is either missing or less prominent in these poems.

Interesting. To me, anyway.
