"I'm trying to teach you to be private poets because that's what I am and I'm limited to teaching what I know. As a private poet, your job is to be honest and to try not to be too boring. However, if you must choose between being eclectic and various or being repetitious and boring, be repetitious and boring. Most good poets are, if read very long at one sitting. In fact, most poets write the same poem over and over." --from "The Triggering Town" by Richard Hugo
"This is my naked poem/before it matures/into troubles, colors, and odors of the earth." --from "A Poem for Adults" by Adam Wazyk
