Often, the very reasons we write are tied to the stressors that nearly prohibit our writing.
from Autumn McClintock
Allow me to say this: the idea that time heals wounds and allows us to get over someone's death is bullshit.
from Garth Greenwell
So many of the moments that seem most constitutive of who I have become, as important as my encounters with poems or with men I have genuinely loved, have been passed in these cramped, ill-lit, often unclean spaces.
from Rory Waterman
At least part of finding out must be in the writing, surely--or, as E. M. Forster put it, "How can I know what I think till I see what I say?"
from Mthabisi Phili
no there is no poetry these days
no meat no food--even water goes on vacation
from Ethan Richard
Poetry is like a very well read 3 year old, it uses terrific words, but uses them so strangely and it always spouts the truth you don't want other people to hear in public.
