It is the task of the poem to detach an experience from its politics. To extricate it from history. By this means, the poet locates the emotion.
The poet, for example, meets a beautiful woman. A woman's beauty is intensely political. The poet undertakes to compose a poem "to her beauty". His task here may be to free [his experience of] her lips from the policy that governs [his experience of] her face.
Update: as I noticed during the discussion below. This post is actually an abstract of this one.
