“Oh, Jacques, were used to each other, were a pair of captive hawks caught in the same cage, and so weve grown used to each other. Thats what passes for love at this dim, shadowy end of the Camino Real.”
—Tennessee Williams (19141983)
“Much poetry seems to be aware of its situation in time and of its relation to the metronome, the clock, and the calendar. ... The season or month is there to be felt; the day is there to be seized. Poems beginning When are much more numerous than those beginning Where of If. As the meter is running, the recurrent message tapped out by the passing of measured time is mortality.”
—William Harmon (b. 1938)
