I confronted it.
I paginated my thesis manuscript. I broke down the way I was thinking about it. I have poems that I sensed and created as sequences—the longest being 14 poems long—and that ghettoizing of work was preventing me from moving forward. I scattered the sequences over three sections.
It’s 79 poems long. Probably about 90 pages, roughly, but I’m expecting some of these guests to leave the party early.
Oh, and I hate all my poems.
