Since mentioning my love of fixed forms and my willingness to try anything once, I was asked to attempt a sestina a few months ago. And here is the result.
I found the hardest part to be the beginning, though I suppose that can go for many things. Still, choosing six words to repeat is a tumultuous task.
Despite its odd phrasing and seemingly meaningless details, every line in this poem has a meaning. You can divine it for yourself. Good luck!
