These days, we no longer turn over a new leaf, or wipe the slate clean. We click and click and suddenly it materialises - a version of ourselves we want the world to see. Welcome to the fractionated poetry version of myself. It's an important facet - or why would I recently have had cards printed with the title "writer, poet"? We Kiwis tend to cringe at any form or labelling which might be seen as sticking our heads above the lawnmower line. But anyway, it's important to me. Maybe if I say it often enough I'll be it.
