State of the Art

This forum on the response to Spahr and Young's "Numbers Trouble" feels way more important to poetry's current contours and possible future than AWP, The Poetry Foundation questionnaire, and the post-Blogger years of the BuffPo list combined. What will a poetry of real parity, when we finally get there, look like?

Wait, I wasn't done gossiping about the AWP...I don't want to go back to issues of equality and political justice, I want to bitch about having whole panels to celebrate Stanley Plumly. Rodney, please!

Isn't "Stanley Plumly" one of the characters from Clue?

I don't know about that, Rodney, but he may be the most widely-known poet that nobody really wants to read.
