Subtle Journalistic Yawn

The nuanced global metrosexuality
of the NYT,
the progressive patrician narcissism
of New Yorker,
The dark democratic dying
of the Washington Post,
the salty smugness
of Atlantic,
the effete unstrung irrelevance
of Harper’s
Newsweek, Time,
even Life itself:

These are passing away.

  1. Interesting take…that ending packs quite an (understated) punch — I had to read the poem twice to fully appreciate it (and reading more than once, of course, means that I liked it the first time I read it — but finding something new on a second, third etc. read, that is always saying something!)
