What is clarity? Immediately Niedecker comes to mind. But that doesn't sit right, as if her work is just a string of Zen Moments. There is alot of pain in her work. See 'Paean To Place'. A very beautiful poem that takes it's context, it's reason for being, from what was a very difficult life.

Clarity is just being able to look straight at things, in writing.
