Did You Make the Who's Who of Poetry Cut? Christoper Cox Got Fired.
The geniuses at ForGodot.com google-bombed the poetic community yesterday. They posted a list of anyone in poetry they thought was important enough to include, which was almost everyone who has ever written a poem. "Geniuses" in that first sentence should not be read with any tinge of sarcasm. I laughed pretty hard and spent too much time on their blog/site/artistic showcase.
I never liked Christopher Cox. I lived in his district for a while, and I wrote him probably a dozen emails when he and the FCC were trying to sell the internet to Disney. He probably deserved firing way back then, but I don't know if he needed firing this time. Does firing the SEC guy help me get health care? I sure would like some health care. This is the first time I have ever been without health care, and I wonder if I should even bother. Surely, I will. I have not had to worry about health care. In Europe, you kind of just have it, and since I have been in the United States, I have been taken care of by the university. If I trip and fall and crack my crown, like off of a hill or something, I will be left for dead by doctors. I mostly hate doctors because they are even scummier than most lawyers. At least lawyers don't get all self-righteous about fleecing you. A doctor is a glorified mechanic of the biological machine. I trust the ex-con at Jiffy-lube more than I trust the average physician.
I trust Milani Rose more than I trust the average physician standing in the way of 45 million Americans and and the right to medicine if they are sick. I found out about her by googling something with "sexy" and "poetry" in the search line. Milani Rose is curvy. She wants us to vote for her because "from my poetry to my sexy pics." Her favorite color is "Rainbow." I hope that everyone who hated me for posting pictures of lingerie models who were "too skinny" or "too close to the ideal of beauty perpetrated by misogynistic piggish men" and Suze Stein will stop hating me now. Suze Stein did not make the ForGodot.com list. Neither did Milani Rose. I think that Milani Rose's poetry is better than Suze Stein's.
