But then I just can't do it.
I don't know what kind of poetry to write. I don't know what to say.
All of my best poetry is spontaneous.
Sometimes my best philosophical writing is spontaneous. But I also think it has something to do with focus, with work. It isn't just spontaneity that produces strong analytical writing. It is hard work.
But with writing poetry, I only know spontaneity. I don't know how to work hard at writing poetry. I only know how to write it when it happens.
