A poem is dangerous…

“A poem is not a straightforward article; is meaning is not self-evident; it can be ambiguous, and if it is, it is dangerous, the more so at a time when the “sensitivities” of special interest groups play a decisive part in limiting free speech on campus and everywhere else.”
– David Lehman, from the Foreword of Best American Poetry 2015.
