    Louis Simpson's description of Modern Poetry:

    "American Poetry

    Whatever it is, it must have
    A stomach that can digest
    Rubber, coal, uranium, moons, poems.

    Like the shark, it contains a shoe.
    It must swim for miles through the desert
    Uttering cries that are almost human.
