Over the next few weeks, I would like to share a weekly poem from my poetry collection as I try out some ideas for sharing my work more widely. Please feel free to leave a comment below or send me private feedback about the poem, its presentation (graphics), and this sharing concept.
About This Week’s Poem:
My poem, entitled “The Pain Game”, appears as part of my “Life Choices” collection submitted to the 2015 CBC Canada Writes Poetry Contest*. This poem was originally composed as part of my July 2009 Thorny Roses update, entitled “New Thorns on My Roses”, shared upon my return from my epic trip with a good friend to Southeast Asia as I headed into the first of my breast cancer surgeries. Its ending was revised following my breast cancer recurrence diagnosis.
