I just got the new issue of Poetry, and I don’t know if it’s my mood, mental deficiencies, or if it’s a result of my being so totally out of touch with the literary world, but I just don’t get it (at least what I’ve read so far).  It’s mostly free verse (no surprise there), but there’s not much that’s free about it.  It feels forced, like a lot of the authors are trying to say what they think people want to hear and/or are trying to be clever.

Then again, it’s probably just me.
