A quick note on "Poetics"

"... in 40 years, nobody will remember cultural studies if we don’t refer to it in our poems. "

One of Ron Silliman's recognitions at the recent MLA conference.

The same's true for our poetics also, of course. They'll become footnotes to the poems that survive the vagaries of time, that remain, for whatever reason, still vital, and essential to read.
