The poet's ideal audience consists of the beautiful who go to bed with him, the powerful, who invite him to dinner and tell him secrets of state, and his fellow poets. The audience that the poet gets consists of pimply young men who eat in cafeterias, little old lady school teachers, and his fellow poets. So a poet can be said to write for his fellow poets.
- WH Auden

(for Robert Fitterman, from UbuWeb)
