WRITERS ON WRITING #51: Marianne Moore

I don't call anything I have ever written poetry.  In fact, the only reason I know for calling my work poetry at all is that there is no other category in which to put it.  I'm a happy hack as a writer. . . . I never knew anyone with a passion for words who had as much difficulty in saying things as I do.  I seldom say them in a manner I like.  Each poem I think will be the last.  But something always comes up and catches my fancy.
