"The poet’s complaint is that sometimes he just can’t think of a sufficient metaphor. Of course, his complaint is merely a pretence, merely a way of starting a poem. Shakespeare could never be at a loss for imagery. Well, I can be. Especially now. What a season we live in! Its dullness exceeds all normal human powers of simile and metaphor." (01/23/12)
