so i tried to write a poem in Leslie Marmon Silko's style, which may or may not have worked.  I liked how she wrote it the way it was meant to be read, so i hope you like my attmept.

Meaningless Me:
 
bent back
       cold
          numb
pulling the spikes out of my hand
 
you were my fix to that hunger
           craving warm rain
penitration
       dedication
               love
ripping out my spine with that crowbar in your hand
only to lay it out in front of me
     lifeless
          birthing those insecurities
you are
     my insecurities
                  cut me
                      rape me
                          beat me
                 lay me out to dry
hold me
     hug me
         keep me till I die
     you
loveless you
lean foreward
