you say I, i say i

i write without capital letters not for effect or affect
but because I’m unsure of myself, my words.
it’s a question of taste, completely subjective
this is what i’m told.
by whom? i forget,
maybe i read that in an interview in the paris review,
or at the writing workshop that i used to go to.
it could be completely aesthetic driven,
might have something to do with,
the look of the dot hanging out there, just above the i,
like that.
