circling words

i'm a 31 yr old woman using this space to recover the rightritewrite to fly; here i soar from in/sight out, blasting off words, hapless and hope-full:

"... and I made my own way, deciphering that fire, and I wrote the first faint line, faint, without substance, pure nonsense, pure wisdom of someone who knows nothing, and suddenly I saw the heavens unfastened..." --Pablo Neruda, "Poetry"

the-thinline profile - diary
comments: a L-A-N-G-U-A-G-E poet who doesn't perform formalist wonderworks for arts sake, but rather plays punctionation like an instrument, scatting emotions deft and dangerous across the page.
