News at Eleven: "[. . . .] Let's face it, Poetry is Poetry and Art is Art

and when either genre tries to become what it's not it loses its soul.  Poetry has lost its way in America--it's an exclusionary country club that does not allow for realism, rather it's fragmented and its howl (and not a Ginsberg "Howl") is more like a slow dying Yawp, with an aftermath of wine glasses clinking and Brie to the giggles of many self-indulgent, stream of consciousness--nothingness."
