Great Regulars: One of [Henry] Hughes' tendencies

and one of the Portland School poets' impulses as well is to recognize entrances to even fleeting moments of apprehension, to relish passages of cognizance, and to be attracted to perspicacity.

Hughes distills these urgencies to something like "he's a rock islander like me" as a way to show camaraderie, conviviality and solidarity with all that which is not him.
