The Adventures of Accordion Guy in the 21st Century :: Joey deVilla’s Personal Weblog :: Shutdown Day / A Modest Proposal:
You want a day I can get behind? No Poetry Day. Modern poetry is self-indulgent crap written by NEMS (non-essential members of society), and many of us go for months without poetry with no ill effects. We could take turns standing in front of a group of our peers and even say how long we’ve gone without poetry, AA-style. It would rock.

Joey proposes No Poetry Day, in response to Shutdown day. I of course am appalled. Poesis, the act of creativity, the guiding operation of the consumer economy, it defines poetry, along with every other creative act… and then we are just machines.
