A Grievance, a Groan, a Redemption

Reading modern literary theory, it often occurs to me we've come to confuse feeling and passion for psychological condition.

Great Mother of Poetry, forgive me, I have lost all patience for mediocrity.

There are more journals than ever, and every one is filled with mediocrity.  I am regularly asked to blurb mediocre books.  And I write my very own mediocre verse.

Mediocrity's saving grace: without it, there is is no excellence.

Yea, that's the ticket.
