The Jeunesse Doree persists.

Apr 12, 2006

Kent Johnson awkwardly discourses and clumsily reads twelve and ½ new epigrams, to be included in the expanded edition of his recent booke of satirical trifles and incongruous pictures, Epigramititis: 118 Living American Poets [BlazeVox, 2006]. The second edition will be titled Epigramititis: 168 Living American Poets (also issued by BlazeVox and to weigh-in nigh 400 pages). The epigrammed writers honored on this recording are, in order of appearance, Jesse Glass, Noah Eli Gordon, Jonathan Mayhew, Jane Hirschfield, Cole Swensen, Katie Degentesh, Paul Hoover, Joshua Clover, Mark Doty, Tony Tost, Mark Weiss, and Joe Green.

Kent Johnson

Hey, thanks to all of you for these nice comments! Dang, I feel like a REAL POET!

I will be reading some more new epigrams here soon, at invitation of the good Joe Green.

Has anyone here seen the excerpts from his The Diamond at the End of Time: Poems of the Loneliest Ranger in last issue of Fulcrum magazine? I think it\'s some of the most exciting writing I\'ve seen in years. It\'s the Gunslinger of our time...

Kenty, can you come out to play? We can climb the hill of your imagined Parnassus. Bernstein will lend you his 10 speed if you promise to stop sticking your tongue in the spokes of his wheels. It\'s must be irksome knowing that M.F.A.\'s
are like community college teachers, they stand out in small towns only to disappear in big cities.

Better than a hot shower, more refreshing than waking up minus a festering molar. 118 poets for $20 comes out to a little under 17 cents each. Slightly higher than the going rate, but with this kind of Joy, who\'s countin\'.

Jim Linden,

That is a wonderful comment. I remind myself of my Dad, too. Scary!

Kent Johnson describes these poems as bagatelles and wonders why anyone could possibly be offended by them but, of course, he knows why. He expects that the Usual will happen. That is, nothing much. The usual silence and the usual return to business. Exactly. That\'s too bad.


Poetry (someone once told me and I believe it) is whatever manages to get said in spite of the various systems of tyranny that try to prevent that saying. If so, these are true poems. The various systems of tyranny are the political, the commercial, the aesthetic and then just whatever it is that enforces mediocrity and requires silence to protects mediocrity. It\'s inevitable that most \"poems\" and poets are simply trapped within these. It\'s glorious that, at times, some poems and poets break away and it\'s also not very puzzling that this happens only rarely. After all there are immense silly systems that constrain a poet and that enforce this sort of thing.


Happily, most of what I\'ve written in the second paragraph is too boring to even consider, just the usual generalizations and implicit in the same sort of silliness that is deplored. But all of this can be dismissed with a bit of the old Deverean laughter. The kind that Kent provides.
