Operative Definition

“Ink runs from the corners of my mouth. There is no happiness like mine. I have been eating poetry.”

– Mark Strand

“Poetry is what gets lost in translation.”  – Robert Frost

“Out of the quarrel with others we make rhetoric; out of the quarrel with ourselves we make poetry.”

– W.B. Yeats

Operative Definition:

The poet is a cannibal

She must gnaw all the meat from the bones

Then suck up the marrow

 

Bisous,

Léa
