What do you find most difficult about writing poetry?
The hardest thing for me is to avoid my own cliches. I tend to write with the same themes: the ocean, the body, nature. I’ve been trying to move away from those comparisons, to find new ways to engage with the language of the world. I want to expand my practice, to push myself further and further. I don’t want to stay in my comfort zone; I want to continually move forward and thicken my experience of life and poetry (they’re the same, after all).
