My heart rouses
            thinking to bring you news
                                   of something
that concerns you
           and concerns many men. Look at
                                   what passes for the new.
You will not find it there but in
           despised poems.
                                    It is difficult
to get the new from poems
           yet men die miserably every day
                                    for lack
of what is found there.’

– William Carlos Williams
