Visions and Reflections (1972)Edit

  • My poetry is exacting a confession
    from me: I will not keep the truth
    from my song and the heartstringed instrument.
    • "Manifeston On Ars Poetica," lines 1-3.
  • I will not coat my words in lumps of sugar
    I will serve them to our people with the bitter quinine.
    • "Manifeston On Ars Poetica," lines 20-21.
