Quote of the Day

Ok, so it's more like the quote from a few decades ago. (1984 to be exact)

"If rhetoric is a serpent, then here it becomes a kind of python, steadily wrapping its coils around the reader."

The quote is from a review in Field by David Young. Any guesses as to who wrote the poems he's talking about?

Hi Scoplaw,
Nope, not Graham.

Of course, it might be a bit silly to value one sort of "serpent" over another. Which would one rather the poems be? A python? A cobra? A coral snake? I'm afraid my work might seem more like the common variety garter snake.
