Questions poets get asked

Why do you write when no one can tell me what the point is? Why do you have to do something so dubious? Why are you so difficult that hardly anyone can understand you? Why do you stand there so calmly presiding over all your neuroses? -- Durs Grünbein, on the questions poets are always asked, February 2010 issue of Poetry
