Friday is my wife Rachel's birthday. So I made a show of some recent poems. It's at http: //picasaweb.google.com/mfinley98/DOGAsAMetaphorForTheSoul/photo#s5189205339007673330

It usually means I am reading the poem 'cold.' With the spell of creation broken, the poem's shortcomings become apparent.
The other possibility, that I remember from when I was younger, was that perfectionism and self-loathing tag-teamed - there was no way I could like anything I wrote then.
'Cold' is better than 'makes me want to puke.'
