An uppercut, in boxing, is a punch that comes from underneath and hits you on the chin. Often, it knocks you to the floor ... cold. .. out for the count. But the thing is, to attempt an uppercut, you've got to put your guard down. You see, in literature you can win on points. But with this sort of business either you win by KO or you don't. -- Oliver Scharpf
enough of poetic poetry/ but also of real poetry/ for that matter/ you can no longer make poetry/ out of poetry no more books of poetry/ if poetry has to be/ then it has to be something close/ to a name written on the groin of a beach/ just before a tongue of foam/ licks it away
