"The magical I mystic genesis of my poetry may be seen better if first my work is absorbed. My poems are not the type to be intellectualized but, like primitive art, their ideas are "felt" rather than rationalized. The psychoanalytic content or poetry of personal relationships contributes lyric energy to the work. The reader should be able to experience the "imagery," the "singing" of words but, also "feel" the ideas as they speak to the reader's subconscious. The poet may become an instrument of change because of the directness of communi- . cation the poetry makes. When the reader attempts to rationalize my poetry the subliminal content, by being pushed into a plane that it does not function on, becomes extremely difficult to understand."
