Q&A, Poem
(Norman Fischer)

JustThis: How do you turn your practice of poetry towards liberation?

NF: as far as i am concerned poetry is already liberation, i don't have to turn it anyhow. writing is not about me- i can't be attached to it or self centered about it, i have to let go and let the writing write itself. so writing is practice by other means. not so different from sitting, really, or anything else.

The simplest way
Is the way, the next movement
Is that moment
Without scorn
                              Into the tappet
