How to get from A to B

The basis of poetry
1.Nothing exists;
2.Even if something exists, nothing can be known about it; and
3.Even if something could be known about it, knowledge about it can't be communicated to others.
- Gorgias (487-376 BC)

"poetry makes nothing happen: it survives
In the valley of its own making where executives
would never want to tamper;...
...it survives / A way of happening, a mouth."
"In Memory of W.B. Yeats," W.H Auden
