omg the poet Mark Strand said, “It’s really about feeling one syllable rubbing against another, one word giving way to another, and sensing the justice of that relationship between one word, the next, the next, the next.”

Hilde Domin said when her mother died, she “all of a sudden … flew into language.”

Mallarmé says that a poem is like a rocket–it goes up by itself.”

for these 3 quotes I thank Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi in his “Creativity, Flow and the Psychology of Discovery and Intention”
