Ron misses Henry Rago. (Who doesn't!) Poetry, he says, hasn't gotten past 1962 (though his own "20 poetry books meme" list is redolent of that very epoch). Whence all this nostalgia? There's a kind of "Grand Piano" syndrome thing going on. Make it new, already!
If you're weary at last of that old world, why not check out some actual avant-garde poetry - click on the picture! (Being, in Ron's comparison, a Sarah Palin to Rago's Obama... I can see Russia from my window!)
Or... party like it's 1909!
