Nature becomes fragmented?
No, two questions:
Objects terrible and alone?
No, three questions:
"am I aware that I take issue?"
No, four questions:
Is writing in long complete sentences?
No, five questions.
Why does R. Barthes make me sleepy?
No, six questions.
Interesting argument from both perspectives, per anyone?
2) Is there any room left today for poetry that actually holds to a strict standard of rhyming?
Can either of these forms (or both together) be taken seriously anymore, or are they out-dated? And if they are out-dated, can they be reinvigorated by a fresh poet?
cleaning my fishes' (fish'?) tank hasn't helped. neither has doing a load of laundry.
i hate college. someone speed me to 40, with a cat and goat in the backyard, and an honest-to-god outhouse, and an honest-to-god interest in camellias and jacaranda, so i can skip over all this bullshit.
you can read this as "alcoholism is still alcoholism, even if you do have an interesting haircut."

- poetic anonymity - esp. the use of monikers - is akin to D.J.s using stage names
- poetry slammers often use names similar to those of hip-hop artists, who as they are often African-American, are often quite savy to the use of marketing - many hip-hop artists will admit that their act is just that - an act - while more hypocritical pop artists are claiming to be themselves
- poetry is very similar to marketing - as someone who does door-to-door sales - the most direct, in-your-face form of marketing there is - I find the skills often overlap
- Walt Whitman was not Walter Whitman
- Karl Marx™ was not a Marxist
- I fear that Silliman may be relegating a certain phenonemon among a number of poets - that of going by a "cute" name on their weblogs - unnecessarily to the margins by his dismissal of it - I suspect there is more there than one might suspect - in an earlier posting he compared these names to tattoos, in that they will be something that one will regret later - but what about the many, many people who do not regret getting tattoos, and take them on as an important aspect of their identity, indeed even an art form?
