Each poet works out something by writing poetry. For me, it's is also a means of self-therapy, within a self formed by culture, language, nation, family, education, experience, sex, body, organs, genes. It's dynamic. Writing out my thoughts (as I'm doing now) turns on some semi-dormant circuits in me so that I feel more alive; it's an energizing process, internal & then external, as are speaking, singing, dancing, painting, photography, filming, etc., all human animation, which I usually call: utterance.
