What Poets Can Do
On the Buffalo Poetics list over the last several days there's been a discussion thread running under the subject, "what poets can do."
I haven't read a word of it, much as I've wanted to. Reading the subject line, over and over again, has been work enough--a kind of self-inflicted virtual torture, the question that won't shut up and gets louder each time.
What can poets do?
Stop being poets, of course. Maybe then their actions will line up with the necessary actions required these days. We all know what we have to do.
Sadly, having so much to do (regime change is hard work, George), I have very little time for writing this blog.
