Lemony Snicket Loves Contemporary Poetry

In the January issue of Poetry Magazine (which does not yet seem to be posted online, but which has already arrived in the mailboxes of print subscribers), Daniel Handler, a.k.a. Lemony Snicket, author of many books for kids and adults, contributes a short piece about his experience of reading poetry, of which he says, "I find poetry actually has very little mystery compared to anything else," after which he goes on to innumerate the perplexities of the local bus schedule.
