cranial uplift

If I read a book it makes my whole body so cold no fire ever can warm me I know that is poetry. If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry. These are the only way I know it. Is there any other way.

—Emily Dickinson (quoted by Higginson, Aug. 16, 1870, Letters, Vol. II, 473)
