Poetry takes something we know, or almost know, and makes it strange and wonderful, often transforming words heard before into a language we are hearing for the first time. Such moments of insight can provide a new perspective for anything: politics, religion, relationships, sexuality, anything. References include: "Old Man Bickford" from William S. Burroughs, and "Words Per Minute" and "Stop The Bleeding" from me.
