Repetition (a poem)

The September 22nd prompt in The Daily Poet: Day-By-Day Prompts For Your Writing Practice, by Kelli Russell Agodon & Martha Silano is to pick a word as the title and/or first word of a poem, make every line of the poem start with that word, and make the poem at least ten lines long…

Repetition is the bane of my existence
Repetition frustrates my every move
Repetition masquerades as routine
Repetition precludes the need to choose

Repetition pretends to be familiar
Repetition says the same things again and again
Repetition is disrupted by anything new
Repetition wouldn’t have expected it then

Repetition as a strategy is strange
Repetition, says Eno, is a form of change
