    Don't know, but to me it seems like the photography equivalent of modern poetry would be setting your camera on a timer, push the button and throw the camera spinning in a high arch over your shoulder.

    Thats a pretty weak approach to photographry (although theres like a 1 in 10 chance of it being completely awesome I'll admit )

    In poetry, every word carries its own weight. --Pablo Neruda.

    As a poet once taught me, with this line from Neruda.

    strip down all extraneous words to the barest essence.
    poetry is the encapsulation of a moment.

    not a single word more.
    You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;
    They called me the hyacinth girl.
    Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
    Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
    Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
    Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
    Looking into the heart of light, the silence.

    --T.S Eliot, The Wasteland
