Poetic Modes that Should be Retired

This is what I used to do a lot of on Bemsha Swing. I got a Copper Canyon catalogue in the mail and I found these poetic modes amply represented.

Really, railing a lot about bad poetry got me the reputation of being intolerant and dogmatic. I almost forgot that there is a reason to do so. Poetry should not be the garbage genre.

And only 4 of their 17 new releases are from women. Just saying. I guess women aren't so welcome in the Copper Canyon club.

Obviously, A. R. Ammons would disagree.
