Poets seem to write more easily about love than prose writers. For a start, they own that flexible "I'". Then again, poets seem able to turn bad love " selfish, shitty love " into good love poetry.

We have been living amidst one of the great revolutions of human history, and we hardly know it: the penetration of the State into every aspect of human life and society. Some people regard this as good and "progressive," others regard it as tyrannical; but either way, it's a fact, a transformation as great as, say, the Industrial Revolution. Absolutely nothing is now beyond the scope of State power.
