  1. Raivenne, the word that jumped out at me in this was the singlemindedness of apathy. It makes me think of a programmed robot 😦 You chose two very rich words to write to that shows why one is healthy and one is unhealthy.

  2. This is gorgeously rendered! We need more sympathy, more fellow feeling in this world! 💝💝

  3. I really like the details you have here – the distant at the far reach from apathy, the way the words sound (“accord, rapport”) – it’s given me a lot to think about. And looking at the first and last lines, I’m wondering how/if might also be constructed as a reverso poem…

  4. I do love this form. Your illustration is perfect and you nailed the two words in this format. I think I feel better when I read it from the bottom up. Too much of society has gone from caring to apathy…and you’ve nailed that progression here. Would that we could light a fire under people at the bottom of they pyre and wake them up to caring again!

So? What do you think?
