Durs Grünbein, The Vocation of Poetry:
I might even go so far as to say that poetry is in large part born from the desire to start over as often as possible.
Steering by compass, from tree to tree, post to post — all the way across a continent, one poem at a time. And if you are navigating to several destinations, all on a circuit, a cycle — seasonal rhythms, braiding themselves in and out — then you do not arrive and you do not depart. You continue.
