The thing I most appreciate in poetry is precision.

As opposed to hazy Romanticism.

The greatest call for precision of course remains the work of Artaud's manifestoes and late poems.

Precision is cruelty (as opposed to violence).

One of the things I admire about Leslie Scalapino is her precision.

One thing I admire about Joyelle's poems is her precision. There is a great field of verbal energy, but at any one point you can zoom in: precision of words and syntax.

Duchamp's Large Glass is incredibly precise.

Michaux: "Already some painters have begun their torture operations."
