SIMPLY SPEAKING

Simply speaking,
since you asked me to look
at your work

If we can say
that how
shapes what

and that content
seeks
its most telling

expression,
then: how you experience
foreshadows

what you will say.
Aware that habits of mind,
predilections

in apprehension
and judgment
underlie our world,

aware, also, that moods
hold sway
beneath expression

and that obsessive
intentions guide it,
you can

make the how and what
more clear
and more clearly

your own.
It is not what you
or I

have to say
that interests me
most, but

the states of mind
that underlie, undermine
and preclude

the saying of it. “In mind
matters.
Even the most assured

and inspired
has its nurtured
origins.
