The King’s Pawn is a three-dimensional poem of two perspectives, at play with the contrasts and connections of two perspectives. This is a poem best read (or heard) in two voices):

  1. Player: Reader #1 reads down the left-hand column as “The Player.”

  2. Pawn’: Reader #2 reads down the right-hand column as “The Pawn.”

  3. Reader’s (or Listener’s) Larger View of Both:  Readers 1 & 2 read their parts alternately, reading across the lines together.
