From Steve Klepetar

Martin Pederson has fun with the idea of repetition, actions and choices repeated to the point of obsessive compulsion in his poem “I Repeat Repeat.” His speaker walks the same corridors, sings the same songs, buys the same chocolate cake over and over – even his tooth brushing pattern is identical. The ending brings the poem in with a quiet bang –
“Oh, I just thought of something/I will only do once.”

         Thank you, Master Steve.
