Not even close. Something urges, or, more accurately, nags me, forward, wanting to master the palindrome. I just googled “how to write a palindrome” and discovered that there are three distinct ways. It appears that what we’re doing here is the first way I read about, which is to be able to read the poem backward, word by word, as it is frontward. You can also do it letter by letter, which looks nearly impossible to me, or line by line, which looks easier.
I am very challenged by the word by word form and since it won’t let go of its choke hold on me, I’m going to continue to make attempts at the palindrome until I feel I’ve really made some progress. I guess you could say that I’m using 20 Lines as my ground to plow through palindrome. Hope you don’t mind.
