By Hand is a monthly prompt focused on freeing our words by using our hands. This month, we’re exploring cooking and baking with Megan Willome as our guide.

We invite you to respond to the poems we’ll share here—their forms, images, sounds, meanings, surprises. Up today? A sestina.
My favorite poetic form, the sestina, gives me space to explore implication.
The sestina, like a song, helps us say what we want to say without really saying it.
