Each Poem is New

Whenever you start writing a new poem, it is like you have never written a poem before. Each poem is a new approach.

Last poem and the next poem. I try to focus on that. I hope that I’m changing all the time. Constantly asking myself, how can it be different from the last? I like having something to work on. That’s how my head is. I have to do something new. Something different each time.
