"These poems have convincing moments, but finally you shut the door on life. Philip Larkin may have done as much in "This Be the Verse," but there is not only much he admired--jazz, for one--but also, he had sympathy for those like himself who often felt nailed to the floor."

Nice to get something other than a form rejection letter.   Of course, I refute what he says at the end of the first sentence, but I guess I'd have to.  If I've ever read any Larkin, I don't recall it, so I guess that's my bad.  I lean more towards post-punk myself.
