“The best poetry has its roots in the subconscious to a great degree. Youth, naivety, reliance on instinct more than learning and method, a sense of freedom and play, even trust in randomness, is necessary to the making of a poem.” -May Swenson
How often do you just start writing? How often does one line or a thought come to you, and you just know you have to make that thought into something.
How often do you decide that you want to write a certain poem, and you write with a form in mind? How often is your work about having written something, and not about playing with words? How much freedom do you give yourself?
Do you agree with Swenson?
