The moment of change is the only poem. [Adrienne Rich]
The thing that is broken has particular authority over the act of change. [Louise Gluck]
I trust language maybe a little too much. But it seems safer than some other things I've trusted in my life.
I was going to say "it all ties together somehow" but I think the point these days is that it doesn't. Or doesn't have to.
Simultaneously longing for & resisting closure in my work. That's the point of it right now, I think, or the goal.
