A poet is someone who dreams
on her feet, for whom words
are the digestive reason
of her soul. This is not to say
that she never goes hungry or
craves unorthodox nourishment. It's
really not a complaint at all. Neither
is it an apology or a romancing
of her craft. She has no illusion
about where the words come from.
They come from nowhere.
