“Nothing
Touches
a work of art
so little
as words
of criticism:
they always
result
in more
or less
fortunate
misunderstandings.
Things aren’t all
so tangible
and sayable
as people
would usually
have us believe;
most experiences
are unsayable,
they happen
in a space
that no word
has ever entered,
and more unsay
able than all other things
are works of art,
those mysterious existences,
whose life endures
beside our own small,
transitory life.”
