    By metaphor you paint
    A thing. Thus, the pineapple was a leather fruit,
    A fruit for pewter, thorned and palmed and blue,
    To be served by men of ice.
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Consider how the speechless, invisible gods
    Ruled us before, from over Asia, by
    Our merest apprehension of their will.
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Or heard or felt came not but from myself;
    And there I found myself more truly and more strange.
