from The Street's Kiss:
Poetry is the shook foil of the imagination. It should shine out and half blind you.
A poem is a mirror walking down a strange street.
Poetry is music forced through a fire hose.
Poetry is a lyric conversation overheard on a dark night near a dismal swamp in an illegal city.
Poetry is midday singing at midnight.
Each poem should be a momentary madness, and the unreal is realist.
