Kate reflects on writing poetry:
When I write a poem, I have to be very patient as I sort out the confusion of words until I recognize the true ones, the ones that finally and somewhat grudgingly reveal themselves. When I write a poem, I am trying to distill a fleeting sensation that does not seem at first to have any language to surround it. I have been writing poetry when inspired since I was very young.
