Working Notes at How(ever) archive --> plus the poems "Do Well" and "Lodging"
If I write as freely and rapidly as I can, on re-reading I frequently find language clusters that please and surprise me. (Will my little dog know me?) I lift them from the often relatively banal prose matrix, arrange them, sometimes but not always in the order in which they appear, and on a good day I like what I see. I work to strengthen meaning, changing words and connections, margins, line-breaks and stanza-breaks, until the poem takes a shape and a sound that satisfy me.
