Anne Boyer Quote


I have said I am a poet in order to suppress being a cultural critic — because the lure of cultural criticism is that it gives an endless opportunity to waste one’s life. for culture is almost always wrong, and always presenting us a wrong to contemplate: and how addicting it is to perform one’s cleverness, again and again, to lob each fiery thought at each of the million wrong ships which float by, doing nothing about the sea itself.

- Anne Boyer, doing nothing about the sea itself
