W. S. Merwin on listening to poems

"Any work of art makes one very simple demand on anyone who genuinely wants to get in touch with it. And that is to stop. You've got to stop what you're doing, what you're thinking, and what you're expecting, and just be there for the poem for however long it takes."
-- W. S. Merwin
