So yeah, I'm reading some poetry by this 16 year old, and yes, I am quite impressed by it. This is when I wished I had read some of this stuff in workshop when I was doing my undergrad. Sure, there some preciousness to his writing, not quite surprising for a writer of his age, but there is also a precociousness to it. At one point, I was reminded of George Oppen's poem "A Theological Question."

so um, who (one wonders) is the young poet whose work you are here critiquing, remarking about, or ruminating on?
