With a Little Help from W.S.Graham

Poetry is not the curation of the poet’s self nor a mode of self-transcendence. Poetry is the discovery of the self in otherness. Writing poems is a dodgy business. W.S.Graham:

Dammit these words are making faces
At me again. I hope the faces
They make at you have more love.

from “Implements in Their Places.”
