Heather Sweeney : part five

How does a poem begin?

A poem begins with attention to a moment.  To an inner momentum.  A memory.  A pause, a pulse of something you need to articulate.  Like the intersection of ash and willow.  Wilting fog.  Mist and pine.  It begins with a door. With hunger.  With a song humming in the shoulder blade. With surrender.
