Jonathan Andrew Pérez : part two

How do you know when a poem is finished?

The process is much like what I think whittling wood is like.  I engineer a framework, I delve into the dream, and I break it down as much as sound allows.  The end is the point that an internal logic crystallizes, and the subject (the writer) suddenly learns from the object (the writing).   Once that happens, there is space to think.
