The word, as description, is a snapshot. The problem is Poetry is a film.
So, as regards my referenced poetics essay in prior post, "Educating the Shih....", will need to adjust per:
--from Tom: "the idea of getting out of the way of the poem, and yet, and yet that doesn't always mean Ginsberg's "first thought, best thought"; whether in your case, it involves extensive revision, it could. Getting out of the way is to separate greater from lesser desires in the act of composition and revision, not necessarily "automatic writing" a la the surrealists"
--from John: move up the reference to Filipino indigenous myth as that is central.
"Getting out of the way is to separate greater from lesser desires in the act of composition and revision" is key, moithinks.
Final version likely will be posted at "Babaylan Poetics."
