Once, probably, I used to think that vagueness
was a loftier kind of poetry, truer
to the depths of consciousness, and maybe
when I started to read mathematics and science
back in the mid-70s I found an unexpected lyricism
in the necessarily precise language
that scientists tend to use.
My instinct, my superstition
is that the closer I see a thing
and the more accurately I describe it,
the better my chances of arriving
at a certain sensuality of expression.
And at the BrainyQuotes website is this quote (and many others) by DeLillo (and many others).
For me, writing is a concentrated form of thinking.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
