How does your work first enter the world? Do you have a social group or writers group that you work ideas and poems with?
I'm extremely grateful to have two poets I share work with. We 100 years ago met in graduate school and know the trajectory of each other's work very well. We each have a different heart-brain-balls ratio. I’m balls first, brains second, heart third. They're the opposites. So their feedback is usually aspects of the poem I never instinctually consider. That's invaluable.
