The rules of a skinny poem:
Eleven lines. The first line can be any length; the last is as long as the first because it uses the same words, though they can be in a different order. ALL of the intervening lines are a single word, AND lines 2, 6, and 10 use the same word.
My poem is written following my vacation in San Francisco with my husband, during which I caught up in person with my poetry sister, Tanita Davis. It was so phenomenal to see her and hug her and get to talk with her, and so I decided to write about her.
When Tanita hugs you
when Tanita hugs you.
