Advice from a Poet Now Gone.

Advice to me on writing from a friend and poet, now gone.

Write poems, no matter whether they're read, no matter what anyone says.

Forget about being judged, who is right, or wrong. Forget all of it. Will they think I am smart? Worthy? Put it all aside.

Close your eyes, stand at the edge of the board, shivering. Dive in to the deep, the cold. It's down there, waiting, and the harder, the more painful it is to find, the more important it is to find it.
