from an email to jonathan hayes

i saw zapruder's book too.  i thumbed thru it.  interesting.  but i don't know.  another tome about the necessity of poetry?  do we need such a book?  again?  the defense of poetry is manifest by the reading and writing of poetry.  does it have a utility, particularly in these politically crazy times?  i suggest people read the eastern european, and latin american, poets for their answers.  i think zapruder is a good poet.  and i don't begrudge his collection of essays.  i'm not sure i am the audience for it.
