Literate Dissatisfaction


Non-specific obscure writing

Either in poetry or prose

Or even in a musical lyric

Can cause its readers to doze


Those who write non-definitively

And are nebulous to the point of distraction

Can bog down their readers in irrelevancy

And provide literate dissatisfaction

Too true :)

What the hell are you talking about? (Just kidding.)

Yeah, if T. S. Eliot or Wallace Stevens had written murder mysteries we'd never know who done it.

Rob Graber

those = though in my previous comment.

I sometimes feel this way about Hart Crane and Ezra Pound, those others would beg to differ.

As always, a compact piece of wisdom and common sense accompanied by a picture that sums it up nicely.
