...I guess you have to give him credit for picking a Rich White Male from a wealthy background. One who like Russel Edson never had to work for a living and coasted through the world on his trustfund inheritance.
After all, the Rich deserve to be honored too, don't they. Just ask Louise Glick. Or Richard Howerd. Or Frederick Siedel.
(I try to misspell rich poets' names on principle.)
