Revising poems is hard.

i've been experiencing a similar thing with a comic book i'm writing. since i can't draw i've been writing out art direction panel by panel and have each page planned out to have a certain flow and timing and then one of my editors says "oh, maybe if you have [Chloe] say this and then [Joe] does that instead" and it's a great suggestion, but then that means i have to go back and completely rework the panel count and timing for three pages just to accommodate one change in dialog

that being said, the pain in the ass that revision causes is totally worth it, i've found

Reading contemporary poetry is hard enough, I couldn't imagining editing the stuff.

Well. Not much there to begin with, is there? And when you see the need for every structural part, it can be daunting.

Remember whatever you take out may become another poem on its own? That's helped me before. Easier to know it won't all die...

I still have two full BOOKS I haven't edited since I finished them in 2003. :/
Which is to say: You are very correct, sir.

(This is also why I like photography more)
