#62, "Poetry and Writing"


          

Chapter 3 of Writing the Mind Alive talks about PW as a path to better writing. I've been thinking that this site would be a natural for folks to talk about the writing they are doing, the joys it brings them, the downs it generates. What about poetry, for openers? When do you love it? When do you hate it? Is it even necessary anymore? Here's a little gem by James Schuyler:

A White City

My thoughts turn south
a white city
we will wake in each other's arms.
I wake
and hear the steam pipe knock
like a metal heart
and find it has snowed.
