    I read a different edition, beautiful, handcrafted, and full of artwork. "Poetry the shortest distance between two humans." Beautiful. I read a different edition, beautiful, handcrafted, and full of artwork. "Poetry the shortest distance between two humans." Beautiful.

    my favourite ones: Like a bowl of roses a poem should not have to be explained Poetry is pillow-thought after intercourse It is a bare lightbulb in a homeless hotel illuminating a nakedness of minds and hearts It is the voice of the Fourth Person Singular Poetry is not all heroin horses and Rimbaud It is also the powerless prayers of airline passengers fastening their seatbelts for the final descent

    A wonderful collection of free verse statements, significantly overlapping with "Poetry as Insurgent Art." I have too many favorite lines to list and this book is prominently featured on my bookcase's poetry shelf.

    A few good summary visions of what poetry can mean to us. For example, "Poetry is the anarchy of the senses making sense." and "Poetry is made by evaporating the liquid laughter of youth." and "Poetry should be emotion recollected in emotion."
