as is




i used spaces in many one-lines in 70s. transition phase from 3-line--altho i wrote some 1-line in early 70s. i believe lines without extra spaces give the reader the dignity of doing the reading without being directed by the poet. but i also know that a poet has to become comfortable before such a line looks like a poem. and can trust the reader. and oneself. there's also a change that occurs in the conception of the poem which is intriguing and spooky. then gets natural.
