“The world comes into the poem,
The poem comes into the world.
Reciprocity - it all comes down
As with lovers:
When it’s right you can’t say
Who is kissing whom.”—Gregory Orr, from Concerning The Book That is the Body of the Belovedahuntersheart)
“To be great, be whole; exclude
Nothing, exaggerate nothing that is you.
Be whole in everything. Put all you are
Into the smallest thing you do.
The whole moon gleams in every pool.
It rides so high.”—
