Constantly Risking Absurdity
How we cite our quotes:
the poet like an acrobat
climbs on rime
to a high wire of his own making (6-8)
You try climbing on rime. It's sure to get messy and scary. But then again, it's all your creation, so you might as well explore it while you can.
where Beauty stands and waits
with gravity (25-26)
This exploration isn't just your average cross-country trip equipped with cheap motels, dingy gas stations, and bed bugs. This one is cosmic and if one is willing to take the risk, chances are the rewards will be cosmic too.
