I’m seeing Potter’s poetic news weakly held and raising it with the famous essay of Gioia to the world….
I could quote a salient part, but prefer to let the pediatrician from Paterson doctor the words that will heal the nation:
My heart rouses
thinking to bring you news
that concerns you
and concerns many men. Look at
what passes for the new.
You will not find it there but in
It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
of what is found there.
