The process of writing poems brings peace.
Aphorisms are open to misunderstanding. Perhaps a text will help. This is from The Selected Poems of Osip Mandelstam, translated by Clarence Brown and W.S. Merwin (1973).
Note the ‘narrative’ or movement of the poem from contingency to the abyss to agapeic being. This movement allows me to include it in my Anthology of Metaxyturn. The way it opens on the mysterious beyond — the sign of metaxu—- is the key to the form.
