Poetry is like a plant which is detached from its cause and creator, a natural organism, a flower.


Writing poetry means to me: victory. Blood.

J.C. BLOEM (4)

What someone is in the deepest of his being, is demonstrated by his poetry.

Is this enough: a handful of poems
to justify a life?

A poem gets better as one notices its words less obviously.

Form and content of a poem originate at the same time, are fully inseparable. I would like to proceed by saying: they are equal, they are the same.
