oh wrist bone oh ring shadow
oh thin-lined tattoos
swirling florals cutthroat & envy

all muscle & smooth & tucked elbow
& little cat scratch scars

rind of blade & whistle

There are plenty of reasons to love epistolary storytelling. Personally, I love the way various epistolary formats can shape a story in interesting and innovative ways, and I also love how the choice of format can hone the voice of a story.
