Ode to Best

Ford Shteyngart Messud Pessl and Hempel
My brain strains to contemplate
the dilemmas of talent
precocious well-crafted sentences
constructions designed for literary experts
precious New York Times perspective
five approved names
wunderkinds,
you'd think
bland, feeble, pompous
daddy complex
empty nonsense
"best" of "today"
literary sliver
tops-down culture
Ford, Shteyngart, Messud,
Pessl, and Hempel.

(Just something to chew on while I slowly post the excerpt I mentioned, which will take several days.)
