Honestly, I think the top of the cream-of-the-crop here, "Make It Pneumatic," is fairly lame (or, at least, deflating). I think we could do much better; but, that's just me. The only poetential quote not needing revising? Marianne Moore's definition (for Frank, of course):
"Poetry is the art of creating imaginary gardens with real toads."
But, I'm game: "We are suffering from too much sarcasm . . . as if."
