Here is one of the CMT-related poems I’ve written. There aren’t many. This was the first and is surely the longest. It’s in the long-line style of James Schuyler, who offered a really fun, liberating model a few 30/30s ago. The title nods to Frederick Manfred (AKA Feike Feikema) who wrote a historical-fictional account of the legendary mountain man Hugh Glass, loosely the basis for the film The Revenant.
CMT and other hideable/hidden diseases may often be denied by the people closest to you — a potentially devastating, psychologically defeating, and depressing, gaslit reality that is toxic and abusive.
