There are so many poetry books coming in now. Old out-of-print poems are getting reissued, new up and coming poets are getting attention, and it’s all because of this “Milk and Honey” book of…sex and relationship poems or some such? I haven’t read it. Just skimmed a page or two. I wasn’t exactly impressed but to each their own I guess.
Mike is probably still envious of all of these authors getting published before him too. It takes a lot of work to get a book put onto a shelf in a bookstore. He’s not recognizing that aspect of it all and just wants the end result.
Also, poetry to me is kind of…meh… There’s some good stuff in there I’m sure, but a lot of it is pretty obnoxious and self important.
