really liked it

Charles Bernstein is a badass. Girly Man is the funniest poetry I've read in a while, and when I finished the collection I found myself asking and answering some interesting questions:

1. What is the point of poetry? Is it really just pretentious crap?
2. What exactly is a L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E poet?
3. What is Bernstein trying to say about the media?

When I woke up the next morning after reading this, I was like, "damn. I feel hungover. I guess I had too much to think last night." BAM.
