Pure painting or the art of drawing whose point of departure is based on purely formal criteria is,in my opinion,passé. I do not reject it if other artists make attempts,but as far as I am concerned,this is what I believe. if I do not place a text next to my drawings,I consider the work on such programmes to be futile.
Like a piece of ice on a hot stove the poem must ride on its ownmelting. A poemmay be worked overonce it isin being, but may not be worried into being.
The more rhymethere isin poetry the more dangerof its tricking the writer into something other than the urge in the beginning.Carl Sandburg
