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
