Cold, a temperature below the norm
Cold, a virus attack
Cold, when the doctor prepares the jab
Cold, when you pay the tab
Cold, a reason snow falls
Cold, a function of the fridge
Cold, prevents the food from spoiling
Cold, when swims early in the morning

In Singapore, we are always hot, hot, hot for 365 days. I wish we have seasons.
In response to Writing 201, Day 9: Cold, Concrete Poetry, Epistrophe/Anaphora
Concrete poetry at a glance:
- Generally speaking, any poem that’s typographically arranged to represent a specific shape (recognizable or not) is a concrete, or “shape” poem.
Anaphora simply means the repetition of the same word (or cluster of words) at the beginning of multiple lines of verse in the same poem. Epistrophe is its counterpart: the repeated words appear at the end of lines. Like most simple devices, though, the trick is in deploying them to their full effect. Repetition lends emphasis to words, adds weight, and leaves a deeper imprint in your readers’ memories. Think wisely about what it is you’re underlining.
