I do hope those few people acquainted with this blog are aware that my cryptic moments are not the spawn of some bizarro literary delusion. I’m being cryptic so no one is mentioned outright, and thus placed in a difficult position. Myself included.
I did not spend four years surrounded by self-proclaimed poets and vainglorious auteurs for nothing. Spewing literary pretension like that undermines your claims. I am never trying to be literary here. I am trying to be earnest, and am by and large succeeding at it.
