I have been haunted for many years by Elizabeth Bishop’s villanelle ‘One Art’. Elizabeth Bishop chose a confining poem structure, the villanelle, to approach such a life-consuming event.
“The art of losing isn’t hard to master;” begins the poem.
I can’t find my glasses. I misplace keys then a wallet. I loan a book never returned. One starts early in life losing things. Some are of lesser value. Some seem devastating.
Read it. Find it in yourself and read it once more.
