quote unquote

. . .almost every night at the drive-in, I experienced an extraordinarily heightened sense of language coming from this other source -- literally, a disembodied speaker. It was the eruption of the dreamlike into the moment between sleeping and waking, in which the day world got suddenly transported into that space which is strangely sacred and wholly unpredictable. The riskiness of it is one of the most intense and beautiful parts of being alive. That's one of the things that poetry activates in people, that quickening of psychic experience.
