He may be putting us on or responding to a critic, but in the end, for me " clarity" is what I hope to get from poetry, like putting on a new pair of glasses. The problem with writing with clarity is that it subjects the poem to criticism for being either too simplistic or banal: writing with clarity is a tough act, not that writing utterly opaque poems like Ashberry is easy.
