The imp of the perverse makes me list my poetry blog on gay cruising apps. The result is most often comments like this one:
“I am, as they say, completely closed off to poetry. I don’t know why. It is a form that doesn’t fit the frame of my brain. But I am not closed off to the poet.”
Now, I believe that a strong case could be made that he has this backwards: one should be open to poetry, but closed off to poets.
