As the recent recipient of a Poetry Fellowship, the Massachusetts Cultural Council asked me and some other artist–fellows to respond to a question for their ArtSake blog. It went like this:
Art-making is all about starts, stops, and unanticipated turns. When a work goes unfinished, it may be to make room for another project… or it may just be time to move on.
If you’ve ever had to set aside a work of art that still had potential, why did you do so? And will you ever return to it?
Well, you know Pokey had something to say to that. And I wrote a poem about it–bonus!
