Marla Muse: So great to see women rocking this Scarriet Poetry March Madness tournament!
But does it matter, Marla? Doesn’t poetry transcend gender, transcend everything, in the name of beauty?
Marla Muse: Poetry transcends nothing! Transcendence is a mere intellectual idea! Poetry is the opposite of transcendence—it is more earthy than anyone realizes. It does matter that women are winning!
Okay, Marla. You don’t have to get upset.
Marla Muse: Oh Tom, you know I love you. You’ve run a beautiful tournament. We’ve seen so many beautiful lines. And look at these lines in the final four!
Yes, we should congratulate everyone, now. And these last four. They are impressive.
Marla Muse: It’s so exciting. I have no words.
