And approximate quotation

"Anti-Poetry: A formulation of arbitrary notions of things. One has to allow things to be free of the conventional ideas which the intellect forces on them. Then these charming little things will work by themselves in accordance with their real and con-substantial manner of being. Let them decide the direction of the projection of their own shadows: And perhaps what we thought would cast a strong shadow won't cast a shadow at all, etc., etc. Ugly—pretty? Words that have utterly lost their meaning. Horror, that's another thing, that's what comes from knowing reality, far from aesthetics, as lyricism is only possible in the more or less approximate notions that our intellect can perceive from reality"
