From "Don't Start Me Talking"

[…] beauty and elegance are quite distinct, and if you find my work beautiful, obviously I’m pleased. At the same time, I think of Jack Spicer’s remark to a young poet who told him his writing was beautiful: Okay, it’s beautiful, but what does it mean? (That’s from memory, by the way, and may not be right.)
