BUT...

the problem
with Christian (post-Platonic) European culture
is that it is relentlessly micromanagerial,
literal, numerical, geometrical, material, political,
shortsighted, teleological, dialectical,
assumes without a shred of evidence
that life is necessarily better than death
and there is almost no room for the
'unscientific' abstract, the vague, the self-contradictory,
the vaguely universal, the subtly sensual,
the spectral, the ambiguous, the anomalous,
the apophatic, the polymorphous, the mystically-perverse...

in this briefly-overwhelming culture wherein
all that is poetic is reduced to verse.
