Whan I read poems by Lucebert I get the feeling the SS has marched right into poetry.


First of all it is a delight when you compose a poem or a collection of poetry and can see that the material, initially indistinct, by words and images is developed into something full of expression.

Game and reality: I believe the tension between these two elements is required to write poetry. What one experiences, feels, should get another dimension than just autobiographical facts, should become that other reality. What would poetry otherwise be than indulging in navel-gazing?

Poetry can't be regulated: if it comes, it does come. And when it comes, she takes over.

While writing poetry I can't even bear a fly in my room.

Poetry is a linguistic dimension which is more physical than prose.

I'm terrorized while writing poetry. With prose I manage to keep more distance.
