Oh, Charles Olson. Do I sometimes think that you and John Milton would be best buddies? YES! I DO! Both you young men rummaging around in your intellectual vault for something that would make the world more significant. I guess, really, I'm just trying to understand how hungry I would have to be, how desperately thirsty, in order to drink a friend's blood, and leave his flesh up to be eaten like jerky.
