I am still I

By Lavinia Greenlaw

Because the I must be on intimate terms with itself in order to undo itself.

Because the poem is the escape of the I, not an escape from the I.

Because the I of the poem is not the first person but the person.

Because the poem is the arising of the I, not an arising out of the I.

Because the I arises.
