Writing two forms

I’ve also realized that writing these little essays and writing poems require different instruments. I no longer write essays on paper. I find it somewhat cumbersome to do so because of the waste of time it presupposes, paper and then capturing it on the computer. I wanted to write a poem like this, directly on the computer. It didn’t come out, the sperpento asked to be rewritten, but now I did it on paper, at last I succeeded.
It is that paper and pencil are closer to what we are (we are not digital beings) and have, so to speak, a patience that allows us to go in search of the words we need, weigh them and then write them with our own handwriting (what we are, after all). Nobody rushes us on the paper, we think, we stop seeing what is outside, we feel what we feel, we feel what we think, we feel the achieved sonority and then we write. In front of the screen there is no time for so much.
Now, all this presupposes that we do not feel so much in front of the rehearsal itself. Well, I think it is true, when writing the essay we are fulfilling the dream of Plato and his cave, we do not feel because in reality we are only remembering things we already knew and there we go, to write them directly. The end achieved.
