What I'm Doing When I'm Not Writing Poetry
Some words just pop into my head whenever I come to a point in a poem when I have nothing to say but when something else still must be said. Sometimes these words manifest themselves in the poem, and sometimes I resist these words; I tell them there is no place in the poem for them. Some of these words are "taco," "teeth," "homuncular," and "and."
