How do you know when a poem is finished?
I’m not sure if I’ve ever finished a pome tbh; the crux of my work comes from fragmented aphorisms, one-liners, and half-thoughts which I later expand into, like, two thirds of a thought; I’m always inclined to rewrite older pieces and turn them on their heads. As a result, I have a horrible work ethic that demands external deadlines, lest I keep writing the same lines over and over again. Ultimately, I’m hoping that a pome will one day finish ME!!!
