Today’s excerpt comes from Michael Schiavo’s sestina, “Be Careful, Cortelyou, How You Tell Her” – read the whole poem here and check out his website here. You can also download one of his books of poems, The Mad Song, using a link on this page. The sestina is an interesting poetic form – six stanzas of six lines each where the last word is repeated in a particular pattern. Drawing (ink on paper) and composition by me. Enjoy!
