Two Voices

Jack's been a big help to my writing over the last year (see his blog listed to the right), and some advice he gave me is the source of this exercise. Many of my poems lack tension, because they are too dark or they only show one viewpoint in depth. So, my exercise is: write a poem with 2 voices. It doesn't matter if they directly oppose, just that they're distinct. One could be an object or an animal, or the two voices could be different genders. Maybe a "you" and a responding "I" is a good idea. Go to it!
