Reasons to Fuck Poetry

November 2, 2008

give in. here’s reason #1 to fuck poetry:

Poetry invited you in earnest.  Poetry sent you reams of sonnets, ballads, epics, soliloquies, each lingering on every word, drawing you out of yourself and in to another one, pulling you in, tempting you to hover over every syllable, first concealing and then revealing the whole of its nakedness from angry epiphany to epiphany.  Poetry is very fuckable, and poetry wants badly to be fucked.

get all romantic with the rest of the list by Babs de Genlis from absent magazine no 3
