I haven't been writing a lot of poetry lately. I don't actually feel its absence in my life much at all. I've been reading poetry, however, and perhaps am enjoying that more at the moment. Odds are, when the poetry bug hits me again (as it inevitably will), I'll find what I am writing is better than it had been before. Or maybe not. We'll see. Either way, for now it's all a hoax. Damn you, Wordsworth!
