Head Off & Split is a collection of poetry by Nikky Finney, © Northwestern University Press 2011
This made me think a lot more about what you’ve said regarding the determinism behind choice, and the degree to which we actually choose anything at all. However, I’m intrigued by what you said about power being in perspective, because it seems to suggest that there is simultaneously a great deal of choice and none at all. Can you elaborate on it?
Precisely! All the practical stuff–how events play out in reality–we don’t control–but we always have our experience of those events, our thoughts and feelings. It may not sound like much, but I do think that’s a place of power if you believe it.
