“I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.”
So far I find this way of writing suits me well.
Because to an extent, it is freer than, say, writing an essay at uni.
It seems to be a super-delux version of making notes preparatory to an essay.
but where the notes are ad-hoc
can be returned to
and all the things I say are paths I can take
an essay is to be written for a tutor and so lots of notes have to be discarded
this way I can keep the notes and that’s good because discarding means some ideas get lost
This way also allows me not to let ‘intelligence/education’ get in the way because there are fewer limits/strictures/demands on the way ideas are hierarchised.
and I think that might be useful for finding out
Because part of me bows in politeness to those I confuse and part of me wants to leave them behind.

This is about self-confidence, isn’t it: having the confidence to know that we are not being confusing; that the problem is all theirs, and therefore we might as well stop looking to this particular person for a response to our current concern.
Yes – leave them behind, instead of acquiescing to their incomprehension and feeling that we ought to persevere with them, with the subtext that their fog of confusion is due to our own stupidity.
