I don't know the term "catcher" , per se ,
yet I have an idea of what it could mean ;
And yes , "spirit" speaks through me , and
I act as the medium for it's expression ;
It just seems to flow out , at least 99% of the time...
like butterflies hatching from the chrysalis of your skin, poems coming out virtually fully-formed, with you having little to do except 'catch' them.. then show them at their prettiest
these lines are more how poetry is in me:
there's a poem under my skin -
unformed and mobile under pressure
—makes my mind itch
in me, it's something that burrows its way up, makes my mind itch when it's almost ready. cutting myself open for it doesn't work—not for me. for others it does. maybe i'm a lazy writer.
