"Avoid Adapting Other People's Negative Views" by Sharon Dolin, a teacher at The New School, was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on November 6, 2013. A link to the poem, including the poet's notes, may be found here:
The poem consists of seven semi-rhyming or rhyming couplets. Thus, the poet is at least giving a nod to the sonnet form. The poet plays with words, finding words within words that have a different, more positive meaning: "Be the cat in catastrophe," and "of morose / always pull out the rose," for examples.
