Full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

From The Contemporary Poetry Review:
The Lighter Side: Five Lessons from AWP (Or, Why We Hate Poetry Readings)

  1. There is so much truth here.
  2. It’s funny because it’s true.
  3. You know you’ve been to this poetry┬áreading.
  4. Remember, it’s the lighter side.
  5. Don’t agree? Don’t argue with me, argue with Statler and Waldorf. Go ‘head. I dare ya.
