"The deception of Poets will mark our era, as it has already marked history. On the other hand Poets will show future generations the steadiness of hope, its strength. By paraphrasing Rorty, humanity will have to accept in front of the gravity of nuclear bombs the need to develop our relationships on human values, and to recognize those who are better suited to lead governments and institutions. With the proliferation of poetry blogs, the poetic message should reach an umpteenth public, poetry is filling the medium and instead of "massaging", it disrupts."
