Fence, Winter 2011: A Poem

Self was going to post excerpts taken from another poem, but while she was waiting for the “New Post” page to come up, she kept reading the Winter 2011 issue of Fence and landed on another poem, almost as funny.

This one’s by John Kinsella, and self thinks it is hilarious, because it keeps repeating this line:

My epics lack history and action.

Here’s an excerpt from the piece:

GRAPHOLOGY HOLOGRAPHY SERIES: 3

(an excerpt)

My epics lack history and action.
Why do you think I listen to Joy Division:
dispersal of politics, you are form

and system enough — I don’t need
to tell you how to read as you’ll force
all to the pattern if not to your liking.

And now, self will resume her reading of Fence.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
