My gratitude goes out to Sam of the ten thousand things for this generous and perceptive discussion of a poem from my book on
his blog

I really like how you bring the relationship between language, the written word and the world to the fore. It's as if the poem becomes self-aware in the last two lines.

Thank you, Sorlil. I'm quite happy that people do seem to relate to this poem, since it is one of those strange ones that just came out of nowhere, all at once and very much in its final form....
