Ball-less-tics. The reason for the popularity of this bloke escapes me. Yet he is all too quickly considered the bee's knees across the pond. His safe, unchallenging poems are bereft of passion and seem quite lazily written. And no I don't mean effortless, I simply mean flat out lazy. He reminds me of one of those "master painters" that pays a school of apprentice painters to paint his masterpieces, then he gets up off his spoiled bum and rather grandly signs it while shamelessly taking full credit for. I tried, believe me, I tried, to find something to redeem his lifeless, colourless, odorless work but it just wasn't there. A cold machine programmed to pump out stock poetry could have done better, been more human in tenor. Perhaps his popularity signals the death of poetry as we know it. Another miserable thought: this bloke has a new book on the way. I'm sure the literary lemmings will be queuing up to plant their tulips into his lifeless, colourless, odourless bum soon enough.
