There is a part of me that wants to let go of the wheel, climb over the seat and fall asleep curled in the back. This is the part I would like to see blindfolded some morning, dragged into a courtyard, and shot. I have to drag him into the music like a difficult and neglected child.
This is the revenge of the one who never gets to hold the pen or wave good-by, and now, who never gets to play the melody. He has said that one of the problems with poetry can be its inaccessibility, the distance created between the poet and the reader when the poet assumes the reader knows the subject and when the poem is unclear. Collins strives to do the exact opposite, being as clear as possible to make poetry accessible to everyone.
If you cut me I would shine. But now when I fall upon the sidewalk of life, I skin my knees.
