Contrary to the opinion expressed by some regarding the senselessness of contemporary poetry, I have always been tormented with this search for sense. Fuck it, do I or do I not make sense? And what the fuck is the sense of life around me and of me, myself ... These questions torment me for a large part of each day, but in the rare moments, when I write -- yes then, know that I am not tormented, then I feel exhilarating sadness or joy ... Living itself becomes a celebration, I'm imbued with a dense and cosmic energy that translates into an animalistic honesty. And can there be any greater sense in life than the search for sense? -- Edvins Raups
