At Kim Stafford’s poetry workshop I accidentally wrote a poem that told a secret even though I wasn’t thinking of the secret and when it came time to share what we had written I read something else. Is this what poems do—make you say things you want to keep hidden? It is ok to keep some things hidden which just means private as long as you know what they are. Oh and sometimes our mind kindly keeps things hidden from us and there’s nothing wrong with that either. It is generous on the part of the mind to look out for us this way.
