the editing process.



 
Draft One:

(Earthen, almost, I begin with a newer honesty (or, perhaps (going outwards to comprehend (or communicate)) a slight (nearly incomprehensible) hesitation), and then try to go (doggedly, and in a way that (if we are even going to consider ‘that’ as a word, in this case) hassles) without a future (yes, as future things grow (peculiarly, and yet sustained like a beam by (though I think this to be untrue in how it feels to write this way) nails) somewhere deeper) to hold . . . as like something in my hands, dropped. You could go and try to make a book out of one phase (or, rather, action (within codes (or interstices that deepen out into the touch of reality))), but soon things will stop making sense, and then you have to give up).

I have to admit there is something beautiful about brutal editing. It's like cleaning out the basement. I admit to wishing sometimes my students would edit down to the period -- and then start again, outside the labyrinth instead of trapped in it.
