2. “In school you learned to write as if the reader Were in constant danger of getting lost, A problem you were taught to solve not by writing clearly But by shackling your sentences and paragraphs together. Think about transitions. Remember how it goes? Late in the paragraph you prepare for the transition to the next paragraph – The great leap over the void, across that yawning indentation. You were taught the art of the flying trapeze, But not how to write.”
13. “There’s always an assumption of selflessness in planting a tree. You’re supposed to think, while digging the hole, how far into the future the tree will grow and what shallow, unconvincing weeds we humans are in comparison. Standing by the young sprout, you’re supposed to wonder who will see this tree when it’s full-grown, and you’re bound in duty to consider the serenity of your own grave.”
