Passing the Poetic Buck

He sits in the library reading a magazine
article and the author writes that we must

look to the poets for truth and direction.
He is reminded of a meditation where the

priest/scholar writes for himself and quotes
others who say, said, have said that we must

look to the poets for truth and direction.
He notes that many write and say that we must

look to the poets for truth and direction.
Maybe someone should write and/or say that

we should actually read the poets to see
for ourselves if the poets offer truth and

direction, because, to the best of his know-
ledge, hardly anybody does. Maybe that’s

called “passing the poetic buck.”
