Maya Deren said the project of mythology was that it illustrated "the facts of the mind made manifest in a fiction of matter."

I think this is also an apt analogy for poetry. Articulating that world of one's own sentience that nobody else will ever truly be able to inhabit.

Thus in speaking of one's own work there is only the phrase: "Does the noise in my head bother you?"
