The poet is a liar who
always speaks the truth.
Poetry is an echo, asking
a shadow to dance.
Poets have been mysteriously
silent on the subject of cheese.
Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder,
with a dash of the dictionary.
There's no money in poetry, but then
there's no poetry in money either.
Poetry is nearer to
vital truth than history.
To have great poets there
must be great audiences too.
