Soothsayin'

A good poet—or any kind of writer, for that matter—is a truth-sayer. In fact, the world needs you to be a truth-sayer. I think that we could do with a lot less faking-it-for-appearances and a lot more raw honesty of what it means to be a human being. And by telling the truth, I’m not talking about simply recounting the facts, or stating what happened and when.
