Twixt: “I write to make things right, or to make myself right with things. I do this by the right use of language. This is what first struck me when I read poetry in school and the urge was born or renewed to do what I saw poetry in the right hands did. To me, poetry is the rightest use of language, and it’s no coincidence that ‘right’ and ‘write’ are homophones.”
