Everyone who reads Tao's poems or listens to Tao read Tao's poems immediately tries to write a poem like Tao's poems. Tao's poems are funny and faintly sad and entirely true, even the ones that seem to be about things that couldn't possibly happen. They do some thing that poetry is supposed to do, inside your head, or wherever poetry goes when you read it, and everyone tries to emulate his style in the hopes that their poetry will also do something poetry is supposed to do. They will, of course, fail, with the exception of Ellen Kennedy.
