Know what I mean?

At last. Now, when people criticise my posts for being rambling, incoherent and pointless, I can respond with this:

“I do not sit down at my desk to put into verse something that is already clear in my mind. If it were clear in my mind, I should have no incentive or need to write about it…We do not write in order to be understood; we write in order to understand”

Cecil Day Lewis, “The Poetic Image”
