Revising poems

I revised and posted four poems from my April notebook. I’m glad my writing buddy Karin schedules Friday butt-to-chair sessions so I am forced to sit myself down and write or rewrite. Otherwise revision seems so tedious and hardly ever urgent. I need to get back to the Visions Revisions book, too, which contains fascinating sequences of versions of poems showing their development (along with useful study/discussion questions). The chapters make you realize that total rewrites are not just your burden. The big names do it all the time.
