  1. Rebecca, I’m curious about how long it takes you to come to your final poem? This one is searing and cuts to the core so quick. Do you ever do longer pieces using this same technique?


    • Hi Susanne, it varies quite a bit. Sometimes I see the poem in only a few minutes, sometimes I labor over the page for hours. This was one of the former – the poem seemed to jump out at me.

      I’ve made sequences of poems from the same source text which I put together as a collection. I usually stick to one poem per page, though. I like the formal structure of that constraint.
