Do we agree with some of the conceits of Conceptual Poetry? That poetry is dead and someone killed it? That poetry ought to be quit while we’re behind? That ideas and seemingly-interesting statements are an improvement on all verse? Then Silent Poetry might delight you.
Whether I invented it or not is not important. That I can effectively market it and popularize it and somehow get some critical play from it seems key. Patches won’t just magically grow on my elbows. If I want cushy positions teaching nonsense at Hogwarts and the like, I have to dance for dinner.
Some examples to come. Poetry Critics, take note! This is an important moment!
