Poetry is ordinary language raised to the Nth power. Poetry is boned with ideas,
nerved and blooded with emotions, all held together by the delicate, tough skin of words.
Wisdom is knowing when you can't be wise.
Poetry is boned with ideas, nerved and blooded with emotions, all held together by the delicate, tough skin of words.
Verse is not written, it is bled; Out of the poet's abstract head. Words drip the poem on the page; Out of his grief, delight and rage.
The sharpest memory of our old-fashioned Christmas eve is my mother's hand making sure I was settled in bed.
But maybe it's up in the hills under the leaves or in a ditch somewhere.
Maybe it's never found. But what you find, whatever you find, is always only part of the missing, and writing is the way the poet finds out what it is he found.
