Wallace Stevens says,
"A poet looks at the world
as a man looks at a woman.
" I can never know what a man sees when he looks at a woman.
That is a sealed universe.
On the outside of the bubble everything is stretched to infinity.
Along the blacktop, trees are bearded as old men, like rows of nodding gray-bearded mandarins.
Their secondhand beards were spun by female gypsy moths.
All mandarins are trapped in their images.
A poet looks at the world as a woman looks at a man.
