Q:Hey umm are u currently open for people to ask for advice ?
Um, yes, as much as I ever am. Basically, I don’t believe in giving “advice.” I can tell you about experiences I’ve had that are similar to yours, if I have any, and if they apply to you, then great.
If you know what you are going to write when you’re writing a poem, it’s going to be average. Creating a poem is a continual process of re-creating your ignorance, in the sense of not knowing what’s coming next. A lot of poets historically have described a kind of trance. It’s not like a Vedic trance where your eyes cross, and you float. It’s a process not of knowing, but of unknowing, of learning again. The next word or phrase that’s written has to feel as if it’s being written for the first time, that you are discovering the meaning of the word as you put it down.
