Always In Preparation


Always in preparation for an interview:

What will I answer? Never know.

What do I like?

Why do I do the things I do, the way I do?

Write poetry, play jazz, do yoga?

Body/mind my mental window in my mental interview:

And I must justify it all.

Some germ, some theme begins the whole:

The technical;

The challenge; difficulty.

‘Tween two covers it official –

Probably will publish ‘til I die.

No special motive winks or flirts,

It all grist-for-the-mill.

My ears hear musically,

It all comes naturally, substance counting most,

Not tricks, not formulas, clichés.

If there’s a Corwin idiom

It’s in the DNA.

I work out tunes, -out poetry, -out body.

Mind works out spontaneously,

I give in, give shape,

Substance from-and-in the form.

In short, I paint myself into a box

And creep around until

Some final satisfaction’s found:

A paradox

I’ll never clarify

To satisfy

The interview.
