  1. I read your work in The Inflectionist Review issue 3. The poem ‘First Night’ reminded me of a poem called ‘A Baby’ by a Korean poet called Shin Kyong-Nim. That reaching back to a ‘hidden’ period of development, is a theme he uses too, it is the learning of a word that banishes the mystery for the baby in his poem.
    I am not suggesting you have plagiarized him I hope you understand. I write poetry myself, i would be pleased if you found time to read some of it.

      1. Actually found it via Google books: Along with the kindred note you spoke of with my poem and its interaction with the act of language, I love the time travel in the poem, how, section by section, something big changes, until the “he” is himself something “piled up” with knowledge and a specific kind of regret. Thanks!
