What do you find most difficult about writing poetry?
Getting it right. I want to love editing my work but I don’t. I am impatient and impulsive and like to “get it right the first time”. That is naive and silly way to assume to be. Good poets know how to edits their work - to “cut the darlings…” Editing takes maturing, patience and calm. I tend to purport myself in the opposite of those traits.
