Precious (Amazing)

One of the hardest things about writing poetry is not being too precious about it.

I try to strike all the preciousness away. And then I read the newest mags and journals or html broadsides, and find amazing work, and many precious lines I’d probably strike.

The word amazing is, itself, a little precious. A little over-used by adults.

The only people who really know what it means are children. They are almost always right about it.

  1. I use the word amazing all the time, which is probably why I’ll never be a poet hahaha
