Poetry Quote o' the Day

Getting a poet to talk about his or her poem is like trying to get a dog to look into a mirror; no matter how well-groomed the poodle, these creatures prefer the smell of something real to their own scentless reflections.

--Billy Collins, in the introduction to Best American Poetry 2006

I like the quote, but how does that explain this?
