Analysis of And She, My Breath Becomes
The Muse continues to punish me,
whenever I write prose
Her slaps severe with pain heartfelt,
—no fury 'hell hath known'
She sentences me to endless nights,
and days when words won't come
Until I succumb to writing verse,
—and she, my breath becomes
(The Court at KOP: February, 2016)
