Day 24

Thur 26 Nov

This in an email from Tony Trehy, discussing a draft of the poem I’m wearily fighting – and in fighting it I’ve divided myself into a maze of oppositions and quandaries:

“…think when one is struggling with an idea, it usually means that one has not asked a deep enough question of the subject. So in the question of missing, why is this something you are concerned with? I would rephrase the question to ask: what is the nature of absence?”
