“Some shy from putting prose out there because it’s a
giveaway. You can’t fake it. It reveals quality of mind, for better or worse,
in a culture where poems can be faked. Find a faker and ask him or her to write
anything more substantial than a jacket blurb, and the jig is up.”
-- W. S. Di Piero, “From a Notebook” (in Poetry, October 2006)
