Brendan Kennelly and Katerina Anghelaki Rooke Myth of the City, Crete 1995
Poets and Poetry in motion
If you wish to take poetry with you, speak with the pavement
especially in cities where people prepare for an uncertain future,
but if you do so, make sure not to forget to look up to see the blue sky!
Life passes by, and nothing stands still, but time after time we see the stars,
and streets become rivers in which poets fish for daily quotes about life!
But if people cannot listen to their own poetic voice, doubt shall not make a dent
in a system inclined to make us into cynics who merely hope things will work out.
