The rest of the spoken-word piece (from welcome to oblivion) didn't grab me nearly so much, but this quote struck me clear and deep:

"Nothing will prevent me, neither close attention nor the desire to be exact, from writing and speaking words that sing."

That's an important thing, for me -- that openness and truth, being as honest and clear as possible, paying close attention, are all vital and important, and that with all of that the words still sing, still have such tremendous power and beauty. That there is not a necessary tradeoff between poetry and truth, stories and honesty.
