"The most lyrically free, process oriented, experimental, and/or avant garde writing must be structured, must involve a series of formal choices, because that’s what writing is. The sky’s the limit when it comes to what those choices could be, but they must be made, each an integral component in an overall effect that is not imposed upon content, but that is content. That does not contain language, but that is language. Form and structure build implication, suggestion, and tone as surely as diction and syntax do."
Karen Solie discusses the dangers of "lazy composition."
