A poet can sometimes convey deep truth by intentionally tilting her own platform by self-imposing an obstacle, restraint, recipe, unfamiliarity, randomness or surprise within the writing process.
This week, doff your daily persona and don a different one. Speak like someone else. Take a different voice or perspective. Try a mode or method of writing that is unfamiliar. Tap into details that reflect something you didn't experience directly but reflect the deeper truth.
In short, adopt a different persona and write as someone else.
