Juliana Spahr is good and she sort of knows that. There’s this quality in there, something going on in the knowing-everything of it. The poems should be a little more brittle than they are, they could be as paul says leaky or something so as to put to use all of her talent and intellegence and make the whole thing a little more brave and do it a little like we are humans and we are sort of talking.
Ok. The poems aren’t really that impersonal, but she got on my very bad side when she said that nature poems were ‘immoral.’ That’s an i, not an a. So let’s be c-c-c-conscious of the political implications of etimological variations. Also let’s all eat my shorts.
