Michael McClintock Poet
“We all know that the power of a great poem is not that we felt that person expressed himself [or herself] well. We don’t think that. What we think is ‘How deeply I am touched.’ That’s our level of response. And so a great poet does not express his or her self; he [or she] expresses all of our selves.” —Gary Snyder
