The inter-side

Poetry is about experiencing life from the inside. For me, the inside includes other people, conversing, inter-coursing.

Poetry is about the inside and the inter-side.

This insight helps me see that my work is not moving the group along, not moving to any place, but seeing what life there is to be heard, now, what life can be teased out into the open.

What I long for is to be reflective in public, to carry the sensing of these pages into inter-course, to evoke when with others.

It partakes of dream, of doing, of staying with people where they are. I may want to take them deeper, but they are where they are. Mine is only to observe and report and stay.

So stay is strong and profound. Stay with the inter-side. Stay.
