Poets should just be given whatever they want

“These people are like innovators and rebels. They deal with changing your consciousness. Their form is not a commercial one. Show me a poet that does it for the money, you know? I still think poets are like, for me, like rock stars. They’re kind of magical people. They should just be given whatever they want.”

-Jim Jarmusch,  ‘Paterson’: A Love Poem To Poetry, From Director Jim Jarmusch – Joel Rose – NPR – 12/27/16
