Paul Muldoon
Words want to find chimes with each other, things want to connect.
Muldoon quotes
The point of poetry is to be acutely discomforting, to prod and provoke, to poke us in the eye, to punch us in the nose, to knock us off our feet, to take our breath away.
If the poem has no obvious destination, there's a chance that we'll be all setting off on an interesting ride.

Muldoon Paul quotes
Form is a straitjacket in the way that a straitjacket was a straitjacket for Houdini.
