Sort of Disclaimer
January 20, 2009
It’s not that I am stepping back away from the poems I’ve written, or that I am somehow wanting to distance myself, no it’s not that. But I feel compelled to write that I am both self-conscious of my work in poetry as well as proud of it. I read back at the few I have posted here, and I like them mostly. Some are a little schoolgirl and wistful, and I guess that’s me, too. I just want to acknowledge that I know. I know that even when I read some parts of a few I think, oh there’s too much there. Too much of what exactly? It’s like the poetry equivalent of doodling curli-ques in the margins of my notebook. Anyway, I have dreams of doing poetry that is real and relevant.
