Irina Moga : part five

How do you know when a poem is finished?

I believe that only a minute percentage of my poems are truly finished. I’ve come to accept that some pieces reach a state where there is no benefit in re-writing them if the overall poem is acceptable. 

One of the thoughts I have is that poetry is, in a way, a continuous poem that keeps on writing itself. A “Perpetuum mobile” of words, which we should not attempt to stop.
