Okay, this is going to be a strange question, especially given my earlier comments. But take it seriously and answer me (please). Where is the line between porn and poetry? Is a poem more likely to bridge that gap by being text-based, or picture-based? What can you reasonably expect a poem to "do" for you? Poets have always been fascinated with their power to make stuff physically happen outside the page--console the mournful, seduce the romantic, inspire the political. In recent times comic poetry has become more acceptable (a poem to make you laugh). What are the limits of... respectability? regarding what a pornographic poem might encourage one to do? This could be asked about other... "gross" or "base" functions... a poem that makes you desperate to eat or... I ask this partly in response for Eric's call for experimentation.
