A poem without deleting
is maybe a more careful thing
a little halting

i find that poems come trippingly
tumbling out then shredding
upart and remaking bits of themselves

or they don’t come at all

only this time the poem comes
all forward and if you write
the wrong vowel surprise
it’s the right vowel now
