James Lineberger’s Comments

i’d prefer not to comment on my poems, although i must admit, i myself like to read what others say about their work. in my case, however, i know so damned little about the process and/or the subject matter that i can’t claim any great intimacy with what goes on, only that i do believe that writing is a form of willful slavery, and that we must listen very carefully to learn what is required of us.
