From Ta-Nehisi Coates' Between the World and Me

Poetry as the end of language, or

the edge of language.

Poetry as the point of contact

Poetry as the way to speak as we move toward

and across

a border

where we suddenly have no old words at all.

Poetry for the new

for the as yet unseen

for the unconceived.
