The monkeys who learned to sing

Those madcap geniuses over at The Chimaera agreed to post an essay of mine in the first issue of their graceful tome. My essay is called The monkeys who learned to sing - in which I attempt to refute the tedious "poetry is dead" grumbles so commonly met in the Field of Muse with a different type of argument, one which I hope others might find intriguing. The title kinda gives away the central thrust of my working hypothesis, and builds on some "what is poetry" thoughts I posted to this very blog a year or so ago.

I haven't read much of the rest of the magazine - I get the impression that other contributors are probably better essayists than me. But everyone has to start somewhere, yes?
