“Reflections on the Writing Process, Highlights” by Ricky Garni

JOYCE CAROL OATES

Precise Embodiments.
Running Fluid River.
Flowing.
Errors.
The Typewriter.
Shine Little Glow Worm.
Glimmer.

PHILIP LEVINE

Thirty five years ago
I sat in a small room
with Robert Lowell

THOMAS PYNCHON

Grippe Espagnole
Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du Soldat
Post-World War I spiritual malaise
The flu or something

GERTRUDE STEIN

Indirectness ruins every self-conscious lonely writer.
I want you to write for the Saturday Evening Post.

EUDORA WELTY

My teeth.
My hair.
My face.

DON DELILLO

I might want rapture matched with danger
I might I might
I just might

ANTON CHEKHOV

Flashed like a bright star
and the black shadow
of a dog or a wolf
rolled by like a ball
