When I write a poem, I go into a state of self-forgetfulness, and something higher takes over; I like to call it my best self.
The acknowledged legislators of the world take the world as given. They dislike mysteries, for mysteries cannot be coded, or legislated, and wonder cannot be made into law. And so these legislators police the accepted frontiers of things.
I became a sceptic of one way of seeing the world. And I think it is what started me in my awareness that any worldview is superstitious.
I believe in leavening. You can't have words sticking out too much, like promontories. They disturb the density. You have to flatten them, or raise the surrounding terrain.
