One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

Nice find, Kerry. If I ever do get back to NYC this would be something new for us to go. I would for my later memory's sake attend a lecture or two also. Or a poem reading.
I suppose they wouldn't like my 'naughty dog'. Unless of course I go blind before I come. .For me, blindness is like death, impending.
