the poet

This is why poetry is levity. The full quote that, more or less, spawned our beautiful manchild freak:

“A poet makes himself a visionary through a long, boundless, and systematized disorganization of all the senses. All forms of love, of suffering, of madness; he searches himself, he exhausts within himself all poisons, and preserves their quintessences. Unspeakable torment, where he will need the greatest faith, a superhuman strength, where he becomes all men the great invalid, the great criminal, the great accursed–and the supreme scientist! For he attains the unknown!” (Arthur Rimbaud)
