Trespass


Trespass

Each striated fibre screams in tension
Please offer your services, valiant digits and heals
Begging for a firm manipulating
I need kneading of knots so congealed

Please offer your services valiant digits and heels
I will hold fast my white delta disinclined
I need kneading of knots so congealed
Disarm your weapon and come in kind

I will hold fast my white delta disinclined
Do know not to trespass fallow fields
Disarm your weapon and come in kind
Search less fertile fodder to gallantly yeild

Do know not to trespass fallow Field
Send not ten strong to fortuitously find
Soft curves of sensation and casual brush of trepidation
Disarm your weapon and come in kind

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Just sometimes would like my full quota of massage first! ! !

The pantoum is a form of poetry similar to a villanelle in that there are repeating lines throughout the poem. It is composed of a series of quatrains; the second and fourth lines of each stanza are repeated as the first and third lines of the next. This pattern continues for any number of stanzas, except for the final stanza, which differs in the repeating pattern. The first and third lines of the last stanza are the second and fourth of the penultimate; the first line of the poem is the last line of the final stanza, and the third line of the first stanza is the second of the final. Ideally, the meaning of lines shifts when they are repeated although the words remain exactly the same: this can be done by shifting punctuation, punning, or simply recontextualizing.

A four-stanza pantoum is common, and in the final stanza, you could simply repeat lines one and three from the first stanza, or write new lines. The pantoum 'recipe' is as follows:

Stanza 1 A B C D (or A C B D)

Stanza 2 B E D F (or C E D F)

Stanza 3 E G F H

Stanza 4 G I (or A or C) H J (or A or C) [1]
