Words of a poem should be glass
But glass so simple-suble its shape
Is nothing but the shape of what it holds.
A glass spun for itself is empty...
Words should be looked through, should be windows.
The best word were invisible.
excerpts from his poem, "Glass"
Poetry could be acted as well as composed.
It occurs to me that if we live life well it becomes a well-written poem: meaning is visible within it. The details of an individual life--the myrid of ways in which that life is expressed--should serve to make the meaning held within it clearly evident to observers.
This is what I mean when I say that the desire grows within me to not so much write poetry as to be the poem.
