84



forse noterete perpendicolari contigue alle generazioni assai dimostrative della stima separata dal genere. avanti e indietro le informazioni e tutto il resto. l'artificio mal circoscritto. la porzione non ha ancora misura, non del tutto. ha una massa enormemente sviluppata fra trabecola e collo annessi alle classi continuano alludono si spostano in un certo senso, in un altro, sicuro, pregevolmente meccanici, ben delineati dal programma. quando si diventa padroni si hanno i primi disordini. sintomi di come funzionano. ferimenti eccezionali quindi il crollo avvertono un leggero dondolio. c'era del cubismo e ancor prima la statura di m. così si presentava, copiava i compiti con cura, nell'89 la pensavamo tutti così

from: "against national poetry month as such" / charles bernstein. 1999

[...] The kind of poetry I want is not a happy art with uplifting messages and easy to understand emotions. I want a poetry that's bad for you. Certainly not the kind of poetry that Volkswagen would be comfortable about putting in every new car it sells [...] The most desirable aim of the Academy's National Poetry Month is to increase the sales of poetry books. But when I scan some of the principal corporate sponsors of the program of the past several years, I can't help noting (actually I can but I prefer not to) that some are among the major institutions that work actively against the wider distribution of poetry. The large chain bookstores are no friends to the small presses and independent bookstores that are the principal supporters of all types of American poetry: they have driven many independents out of business and made it more difficult for most small presses (the site of the vast majority of poetry publishing) to get their books into retail outlets, since by and large these presses are excluded from the large chains. [...]
