May Day May Day

Yesterday I wrote a poem that was almost a duplicate of a poem I wrote last year. Aside from articles and such, it didn't have any of the same words. It didn't have the same structure, the same images or even the same tense. But it was otherwise surprisingly similar. I understand this happens to F Wright all the time.

There is good news! Caffeine Destiny is not dead. So send them your best poem.

I cannot understand this harping--I think you did it before--on your personal perception that I keep writing the same poem over and over, which is absurd, and could be said--equally absurdly-- of any
number of poets, including, oh, I don't know, Emily Dickinson. Perhaps you've heard of her.
