Commentary by Ivan M. Granger
And it was at that age... Poetry arrived
in search of me.
The autobiography of a poet and his art.
and something started in my soul,
fever or forgotten wings,
and I made my own way,
I especially like the perfectly simple way he describes how the purest art comes through when the artist steps aside:
there I was without a face
and it touched me.
After reading this poem, I have nothing much to add, except that I think I'll read it again.
I wheeled with the stars,
my heart broke free on the open sky.
