Hollowness

“There has to be some me that isn’t my intelligence or appetites that isn’t my brain. I’m just as confused as anyone as to who that me is, where it came from, what it wants and where it’s going. That’s the voice that calls me to poems. My brain can edit and move things around. But the poems emerge from elsewhere.”

In an Islamic parable, Satan is inspecting Adam and enters him through his mouth and exits through his anus. Emerging Satan says, “This creature is hollow. All I need to do is show him all the things he can use to fill himself.”

Perhaps hollowness is the whole point of our design, that there is pure breath at our core fortified by quiet and stillness that is diminished by everything else.

– Inspired by an interview with Jane Hirshfield in American Poetry Review
