"I find it easier to follow form to content than content to form (forgive the false dilemma), which means I depend on discovering an essential rather than an accidental relationship between the two: a form that can only sustain that content, and a content that could only be articulated in that form. So I find inspiration in works that manifest just such an essential relationship. My paradigm for this for years has been Jan Zwicky’s Lyric Philosophy. My most recent sighting of it has been in Dan Beachy-Quick’s A Whaler’s Dictionary."
