Besides, media are pretty primitive creatures. They only publish what elevates their rating and helps sell advertisement. If you are a celebrity the media will be pursuing and stalking you. If you are not a celebrity you are forgotten for all times.
poet as celebrity?! Oh, god, how many celebrity poets do we have around?
x: Are you a poet?
aa: Well, that depends very much on what you mean by being a poet. I hesitate to call myself a poet. I prefer to identify myself as someone who makes attempts at writing poetry.
Isn´t that gorgeous! You have been writing and publishing poetry
seriously and continuously since 1988 (you have stated that somewhere)
and now you come up with this horrifying statement that you are still
attempting to write poetry.
aa: To where poetry should be. That is to say, I don´t consider writing poetry a monopoly for few. It should become a mass activity. We all should write poetry. Learning how to write poetry is a lifelong undertaking. We are always attempting to write some thing we want to call poetry. Always clever disciples in the temple, disciples of a notoriously and chronically abscent master. Nothing wrong with that, I find it amusing: we write our poems, recite them or give them for reading on papers, then laugh at each, make some Spaß (in German: fun. Please not Spaß is a rich word, heavy metal; fun is too light, not really a match for archaic Spaß), then, hell, we wrap our papers and go home for a nap or siesta. In a couple of hours we will be back with fesh energy to continue the entertainment. The day is still very young... Anything wrong with that?
