How do you write your poems?

A lot of the books I now write are with my wife Polly and when we first married we vowed we would never work together creatively we thought "Thus things would go very badly" but it seems to be we've got a very good way of working together. My wife was a former teacher, so she edits a lot of my material, I edit her material, she comes up with ideas I write them down, I come up with ideas she writes them down and it's such a wonderful collaboration - we sometimes don't know who has written what, but I thoroughly recommend it, it's a great way to get feedback, to work with somebody else.
