A Fairer House than Prose

Insight, image, and intellect in themselves can be a cluster of highly-taxed houses in a cul de sac of poetry which readers pay, not the mortgage to live in, but an entrance fee to
view--much as one would at a parade of homes or a Natchez pilgrimage. Self-interest creates poetry that is more suitable for cable television on a channel people watch to covet, mock, or get ideas for a lifestyle and living space.

When people take to remodeling, improving, or adding on to their lives, how much of other people's poetry will serve them well?
