generalization and cliché
a place you can’t envision (see)
a beach is nearly invisible
Allow the object to inform decisions.
Allow the poem to inform decisions.
Get on the subject.
Writing is difficult and remote.
Censor your ideas: remain concerned with
Refuse to fictionalize.
Forget about everything but your choices.
Respect a bound between actual
and possible, yet embrace romanticization
Allow connections between reading
Ignore everything unknown.
Respect homogenizing and leveling
Write every other day,
every third day,
when lighting strikes.
Technique’s pleasures intimidate.
Technique’s pleasure’s intimate.
Techniques, pleasures intimate.
