is mouthing on a hook
cast into the pond

where the pike swallow
each other

with unreasoning
appetites

Phil, I know little about WCW's work, but I agree with Judi that this has the look and "feel." To me, it resounds of conflict between art/poetry, its creation, criticism of the same, and differing points of view among critics.

I see! Is Tony's take correct? By the way, thanks for linking the Hughes poem--it's so evocative.

Oh! Then what does the hook represent? And who cast it?

A poet that overburdens a poem with thought 😀

I see! The only thing missing here is the reader who overburdens a poem with thought--I guess that would be me. 😮
