How do you know when a poem is finished?

Let's ask the cook. How do you know when a meal is finished? Both poem and meal rely on hunger & deadline.

  1. This One Time (2)

    Mechanics drive the form forward
    and then pulls it back to a small room
    filled with darkness and then bright
    as a newly released star

    It is this density of dreams
    in which her idea is taken
    by day and night's confusions
    as if the air itself had no reason

    as if she had no reason
