Ha, you ol’ contrarian, you! Skeptical about the Good, as well you should be (since whose perception about what’s good gets the prize?).

So are you with David Orr in suggesting poetry is “beautiful & pointless”? Or are you saying that what most people think is useful/valuable is actually incomprehensible?

I wish I possessed enough energy to be both useful and useless to the community of sentient beings. That has been the case in the past, but health issues lately have intervened…I still love poetry; reading it may be as good as writing it, though…at least for now.
