Whalen: Poetry about Poetry

In the tradition of C. Purdy, I'll share a quote from my class with Dr. Whalen, Poet-Laureate of the World:

"Stick with me, lots of you guys think I'm just goofing off, but if you stick with me you'll realize this stuff is fun... but deadly."

And the room got quiet.

By the by, this man is also known for referring to T.S. Eliot's "Prufrock" as "cogitatis interruptus..." with apologies to our sensitive minds, of course.
