Response to "Typical Anne"

I want to respond to Mr. Kane’s most recent post by posting something that has nothing to do with anything he said.

Here are two quotes, by two dissimilar poets: John Donne and ee cummings. The quotes are about philosophy vs. poetry and wonder.
“[T]he clarity of literal language satisfies the intellect by giving knowledge, while the obscurity of figurative language stimulates the intellect to search further by causing wonder.”
-Donne, John. Devotions

“not for philosophy does this rose give a damn”
-cummings, ee. voices to voices, lip to lip
