Conscious Language

October 30, 2010

“To be a poet at twenty is to be twenty; to be a poet at thirty is to be a poet.”

“Language explains us to ourselves and conceals us from ourselves.”

Referenced in Donald Hall’s Unpacking the Boxes.

“A poem is a porthole of consciousness and experience whether opening to the feeling of blood pulsing in the wrist, or the taste of a red-black cherry, or the sound of a rock being placed on a table.”

Michael McClure – Intro to Mysteriosus
