Poetry is for me Eucharistic. You take someone else’s suffering into your body, their passion comes into your body, and in doing that you commune, you take communion, you make a community with others.
“By doing anything that you fundamentally love to do, you are going to suffer for it too; it is going to be painful at times. Love is like that – it is not just a wonderful thing, it is demanding.”
We work in the dark — we do what we can — we give what we have. Our doubt is our passion and our passion is our task. The rest is the madness of art.
