She says: “I always begin a poem with an image metaphor. I am fascinated by what Coleridge described as ‘the likeness in the unlikeness.’ The two things in comparison become the two sticks which I rub together to start the fire of the poem. I seek the poetic context where the comparisons can make a sense and thrive. I’m always surprised.”
