I believe that I've read in at least three different places that you can either live or make art. Some people don't have the need to make poetry because their very lives are poetry. I make emotional poetry about emotions that I cannot feel.
Thank you, it's a line from an interview I gave a few years back. I was really attacked for saying it, but the context was that I said that "God envies the poets, as we can ofttimes walk away from the emotional carnage we have created with our words and works."
I find your work intriguing. Looking forward to seeing more. I am starting to believe you may be 185 years old. Probably an evil sorceress or a vampyr.
Trust me, the Catholics already view me with vague and occasionally unveiled suspicion, I juxtapose the sacred and the carnal too often and too well. The "Sacraments" cycle I am working on merges the concept of the sacraments with sexuality, defining seven sacraments of lovers. It will be controversial.
And you are the most talented dead person I ever met. No wonder you have such a cold handshake.
