How to Write

"The poetry generally is a rhythmic articulation of feeling. And the feeling is an impulse that begins inside, like a sexual impulse. Almost as definite as that. It's a feeling that begins in the pit of the stomach and rises up through the breast, out the mouth and ears, and it comes forth as a croon or a groan or a sigh. So, if you try to put words to that by looking around you and trying to describe what's making you sigh, to sigh in words. You simply articulate what you're feeling." -Allen Ginsberg, Howl
