"Poetry at this time, I believe, has the capacity and perhaps the obligation to enter those specific zones known as border. ...The border names the condition of doubt and encounter which being foreign to a situation (which may be life itself) provokes. Like a dream landscape, the border landscape is unstable and perpetually incomplete."
- Lyn Hejinian
