The Nacreous Oughts

07 March 2004


I. The Poem is not about You, it is not about Me; it is always and everywhere about the Entelechy of Silken Otherness.

II. A Poem is situated in both Time and Space; therefore it should contain both Adverbs and Prepositions. But being a spoken utterance, Time should predominate. The Adverbs must outnumber the Prepositions.

III. A Word means what it has meant in everything you've ever written--and nothing else besides.

IV. We are the Shadow of Things To Come, and say more than we know.

V. The Dictionary is the Samovar of Poetry.
