Poetry is a language that matches me. For if you're a little watchful, if you feel the need for an overall picture because it's always a chaos in your head, a poem can be quite nice. For with a poem you can keep an eye on all sides at the same time.
In The Netherlands there really are many fine poets. We really have a rich, healthy, magnificent poetry. It's good to realize this again each year: look, we are a handful of idiots but what good things we have to say!
