This ‘Lament’ is presented as a concrete prose poem addressing the loss of in person sessions and the move to the online platform during the covid-19 pandemic. The chiasm literary structure has been used to format the words of the ‘Lament’ in an archaic form and to present language and thoughts in a way that challenges our perceptions of the ways we read text and picture online. The work of Riley, Lemma and J. J. Gibson have been introduced to help frame beginning thoughts on what it means to be working with another in an art therapeutic context online.
