A Remark on "The Mainstream"
I plead "no contest" to the charge that I am a "mainstream" poet. I feel no need to respond with more than two questions to the allegation, even when made with a condescending sneer.
I only ask, Can you find the river I fish in?
If so, are you poet enough to stand against the current?
Enough of this tiny, self-indulgent mourning. I have a novel to write.
