Ars Poetica - A Polemic by Nina Cassian

I am I.
I am personal.
I am subjective, intimate, private, particular,
All that happens
happens to me.
The landscape I describe
is myself...
If you're interested
in birds, trees, rivers,
try reference books,
don't read my poems.
I'm no indexed birds,
tree or river,
just a registered Self.
