“The precision (of language) which creates movement.”
(You will know it when you see it.)
It does not have to be poetry though. It honestly reminds me of something between Ernest Hemingway and Norman MacLean.
Do you get it?
Ah, well, it will come to you.
It sometimes takes a bit…
I also was enamored of the rhythmic poetry of e. e. cummings, and a tantalizing quote from one of his recorded lectures stayed in my head. When asked why he became a poet, he said, “Like the burlesque comedian, I am abnormally fond of that precision which creates movement.” The line, with its intriguing reference to comedy, was enigmatic, and it took me ten years to work out its meaning.
