Beautiful people

beautiful people with blue face…

giving up meat but smoking believing that bad habits enhance your personality
lost in hours of education and fingering despair and silk (Diane Ward)

I have felt for a while that I ought to have a general idea of what postmodern poetry is all about, so I just went to my local library checked out–what else?–the Norton Anthology of Postmodern American Poetry. I came to the above lines by the poet Diane Ward and laughed out loud, so I had to share them. I thought I was going to read something inaccessible and boring but this as dishy as Hollywood gossip!
