Look For Stuff:
"...One must learn to be a poet, not simply do what poets do. One must see the world as a poet sees it, to move through the world as a poet moves-- more deeply, more consciously, always turned to the language of our experience, and yet untouched by the world, throwing it off with a flash like a salmon sheds glimmers of water as it leaps...Poetry is not a career choice. It is not something someone decides. It is something which happens to the poet, which is born with them and incubates in their soul until the day it can no longer be contained and then bursts from them and into the world-- part of them, but more than them...But this, of course, is what art does to you...First it destroys your life. Then it destroys everyone else's life."
