Publication Date



This palindrome or poem that is able to be mirrored by being read both forwards and backwards includes an underlying theme of being lost in a simply-portrayed setting, allowing for the reader to glean their own desired meaning from the text. Inspired by the main character Trisha from Stephen King's novel The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon who gets lost in the woods, this poem describes the subject who, based on the reader's interpretation, can feel literally and/or figuratively lost or without direction.
