Reflections of a working writer and reader
Whatever, be on the lookout for what you feared you had lost, The talent you misplaced. The only ways really to lose it Are serious damage to the brain or being so attracted To something else (such as money, sex, repairing expensive engines) That you forget it completely. In that case, how care that it is lost? In spite of the truth of all this, however, I am aware That fear of lost talent is a natural part of a poet's existence. So be prepared for it, and do not let it get you down. . . . Kenneth Koch on The Art of Poetry
