News Flash: Poetry Is Everywhere!

     Ann Sexton while at work on Love Poems (1969)


     Poetry is everywhere, and because it's everywhere it's ridiculous to transcribe it. Why capture something that is all around us. Like water, when we try to hold it in our hands it only slips through our fingers. There one moment, gone the next. At its very best it leaves us wet.
     Then again, that may be reward enough for the depraved. PageBoy, at least, seems to enjoy it.
