About the girl you never knew

Seeing how you feel about my work will be my way to find true accomplishment. I have written a lot, I have worked hard, and yet, I am the girl that you never seemed to know.



The idea that a poem was a made thing stayed with me, and I decided then that I wanted to be an artist, not just a diarist. So I put myself through a kind of apprenticeship in writing poetry, and I understood even then that my practice as a poet was deeply related to my reading.
