      My pleasure. I think it’s a bit goofy for people to decide that the poetic conventions of the Modernist period to the present should determine what counts as poetry…especially when the modernist and postmodernist periods have produced SO FEW MEMORABLE POEMS. Previous poets created the cultural capital of their nations, while current poets often churn out pretentious, self-absorbed tripe that a only few academics–of the sort I used to be–will ever read.
