If “I” should always be under pressure, it is the pressure of being part of something much greater, of being under the supernatural weight of a wholly undetermined future. Below us is not only a collection of carbon and time and pressure, but also the narrative of how that past is told. Unless we are miners digging into the earth we have no access to the past, but we do as poets or writers mining and augmenting the narrative of “our” past. WE are under the pressure of narrative, I must act as witness and messenger of my own narrative.
