If you remember back to April when Kenny Goldsmith posted this essay by Vanessa Place declaring Poetry Is Dead (by her hand, mind you), you may have balked at such a brazen declaration. We now have video evidence of the slaying. The video is R-Rated, so if there are any small children in the room right now, you may want to cover their eyes. Many thanks to Mathew Timmons and Insert Blanc Press for catching this on film.
