"and what are poems but weather reports? is there a difference between a poem and a letter? a poem and a cloud? i used to think yes, yes,  but now, as i age, i think that there is less and less of a difference--it has to do with attention, i think, a little setting aside of time to pay attention to one particular thing . . ."
