self/other/self/as

'Poetry seems often a talking to self as well as other as well as self as other, a simultaneity that recognizes the elusive multiplicity of what is called "identity." '

Michael Palmer, "Autobiography, Memory and Mechanisms of Concealment", in Bob Perleman, ed. Writing / Talks, Southern Illinois University Press, 1985.

Yes, that's so hard to explain to others, isn't it.
