Poetry is something I remain both passionate and bewildered by. It never gets easy. I think of being a poet as an ongoing process. I’m a poet only when writing poems. The rest of the time, even as I think obsessively about poetry, I’m other things: teacher, parent, citizen. All to say I am still/always becoming a poet.
