Speaking as a poet...

I am a poet...a professional writer for forty-plus years. It is interesting
to me how individuals, even enlightened, scholarly types can, with any
semblance of confidence, profess to 'know' what the poet 'means' through
the words, implications and symbology; even if, in fact, s/he has intended
a symbolic facet to the poetic words and phrases employed. My poetry is
written solely for ME. The famous American poet and novelist, Robert Penn
Warren said, "For what is a poem but a hazardous attempt at
self-understanding; it is the deepest part of autobiography." THAT is the
mien of the poets I've met and have been honored to know. To me, to be able
to rummage around on the darker, more jagged edges of my being and pull a
demon or angel painfully through my heart and mind, then have the
expressive ability, Flaubert's 'le mot juste' to grasp them tightly and
push them onto paper IN BLACK AND WHITE is a sweet, relieving,
self-administered cathartic process; a 'very, very personal' auto-therapy
of renewal and reassessment. NO ONE knows what I mean or intend, what I
imply or suggest, what I have explicitly stated or have symbolically
veiled. If I choose to share my poem with someone and they discover and
derive within themselves their own meaning from it and are touched by my
words, I am more than pleased and delighted. But I hasten to advise them
NOT TO TELL ME WHAT I MEANT. They simply do NOT know.
