Vona Groarke on writing

“When I write, it’s like running my hand over a length of cloth, picking out patterns, testing the give, rubbing the fabric between thumb and forefinger to feel out the texture and the flaws.”
– Vona Groarke, Modern Women Poets (Bloodaxe, 2005)

    Another fantastic quote. Picking out the flaws is the hardest and most tedious part, isn’t it? Sometimes, I pick too much, and an entire length of thread comes out. Then I have to start the weaving over.
