Emily Coppella : part two

How do you know when a poem is finished?

When it doesn’t feel like it only belongs to me anymore. Getting to that point is hard to define. Sometimes I reach that place, then return to that “completed” piece months or even years later, only to change it again. Maybe I’ve come to the conclusion that when I think my poem is finished, it’s really just “complete…for now.”
