Finish the poem first, then worry, if you have to, about being right or sane.
Seems to me that these words might be equally useful when thinking about making artworks that are not poems. Reading the book, The Triggering Town, I feel there is a lot about what was said that could be applied to making art.
I believe that pieces love the ridiculous areas of our minds...and that the poet artist not always get caught up in questioning his or her assumptions. Many of the guiding principles Hugo expressed resonated with what feels right to me, now that I've heard it, and I've only made it to chapter 4!
