“But when you write poetry, you hope to leave holes for transcendence to shine through rather than building a house of prose.”
#1. I think houses are necessary, and holes are necessary too.
#2. I think prose can be written in such a way there are holes where the windows and doors should be, little chinks between the logs of the house.
#3. In the same way, poetry (usually bad poetry, but not always) can be written as a block, a small house with no holes at all.
Thank you, Mr. Foreman. I strive for those holes.
