it is in vogue to quote what we love.

"From the secret notes
I must tilt

upon the pressure
execute and adjust
In us sea-air rhythm
'We live by the urgent wave
of the verse'"

Lorine Niedecker from Paean to Place

Niedecker was paraphrasing Robert Duncan in the quoted part. I like listening to her do that in my mind.
