Unexpected writing moment:

Last Tuesday I was writing a poem, which was only one line long. When I thought of a second line, it hit me:

Oh, the second line is also the last line.

I hadn't expected that, but I realized it was true.

Though at the moment I'm working on a poem with the same first line as that one, and I'm trying it as a longer poem. I want to see where it goes. Maybe to a different place than the short version. Maybe the same.

They have provisional titles: "Short Form" and "Long Form." We'll see how much longer "Long Form" is...
