    "Left to write". Wow. Brain fart there!

Nah.  Much more meaningful than mere flatulation:  as one
writes---types, one is going right ... the energy is focused on the
right.  Um, like welding (if you'll pardon the unlikely analogic
outburst), where the fusion is happening, heating the materials ahead.
Only periodically touching the left margin, it may be an origin, but it
shouldn't be confused with the focal point---not in reading or writing.

Um, close reading being the exceptional, not the usual, again the motion
is left to right, the left margin is hardly the focal point.  The usual,
scansion, I would suggest a lot more reading is done in scansion than in
close reading, is a mode that takes place in the midst of lines.
