and it burns burns burns that ring o' fire

all you intells who wanna characterize billionaire Bob Dylan and his fellow wealthy plutocrat tunesmiths


go ahead, I don't care, I have no interest in establishing hierarchies boundaries of who's
a poet and who's a what,—

but if the billionaire Zimmerman is a poet,

then where's James Tate's Grammy—

where's the Rolling Stone cover stories on Gluck/Olds/et al—

where's John Ashbery's Kennedy Center Presidential Honors Medal?


With music and poetry, it's a one way street.

And guess who's always getting run over on it.
