excerpt: “The thwarts, the stutters, the choice to not conclude—this isn’t the way I speak when I go to the bank. As Oppen writes, ‘We change the speech because we are not explaining, agitating, convincing: we do not know what we already know before we wrote the poems.’ And this is part of why I write: I want to know about things, to discover.”
