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.
