Feeling full for it

Yes, yes, I say yes, yes to hearing the movements, the nuances, the humour, the wiseness of Stein's amazing piece. Don't fence her in. Don't fence language in. Don't fence Poetry in. Poetry wants to move, Poetry wants a shut open shutter in tights or out with ears and hands and toes and spring in more than a thin running water. Exactly as in kings.

If you ever get a chance to see the piece performed live, do it. Lightfoot Leon are magnificent.
