Poetry, it is one, involuted something, it is. . .
"He who cannot attract Pan approaches Proteus in vain." - Pico della Mirandola
For through the Janus of a joke
The candid psychopompos spoke. - WH Auden
Come on, come on! and where you go,
So interweave the curious knot,
As ev'n the observer scarce may know
Which lines are Pleasure's, and which not. - Ben Jonson
