Q: Sir, what is rebellion?
A: Poetry is rebellion. Forget meter, forget structure, forget grammar. It's for those who like to live in confinement, those who are too afraid to step out and bare their hearts. Be incomprehensible. Life is incomprehensible. Rebellion is incomprehensible.
Rebellion is not in taking to the streets in a crowd and yelling slogans about changing the world. Rebellion is not noise. Rebellion is to put yourself to the wall and confront your deepest fears, to strip and be vulnerable. Rebellion is silence.
- Camus
