“When I write a poem, I don’t think about it as a part of a book. I even forget that it will be published; that someone is going to read it. When I write, the ghost of my reader does not peek over my shoulder. I purposely scribble. I write letters to myself I send to my future. And also to my past.”
— Russian poet Vera Pavlova in this wonderful interview at Literary Hub
