toward a poetics that does not reciprocate violence

The finger that taps the "I" when typing is also the finger that defies. It is hard to type naturally when the finger of offendedness is in its offended position.

What metaphor applies?

Perhaps we lose full access to our "I," our existing essence, when our writing reduces ourselves and others with dismissal or anger.
Pie Jesu. (He wrote in dust.)
