Quote of the Week

A friend sent this to me via email last week:

"A poet who reads his verse in public may have other nasty habits."- Robert Heinlein

I hesitate to ask why, but I think it may have something to do with the speaker's resentment towards a sleight-of-hand effect of a good public performance of an otherwise terrible poem.

Who knows.

Isn’t performing your own poems a tad bit narcissistic?
