*attrib. to Wallace Stevens, after Frost allegedly complained about the obscurity of Stevens' poetry

**This footnoted segment was hacked out of AnnyNymity's original 2010 poem, circa 2014 or 2015 (but is still visible on the original PDF, which is accessible under the poem's html-page byline link): "I love you, Alice B. Toklas." --Peter Sellers, earning and learning while acting as establishment lawyer gone contrary, Harold Fine (lyrics and music credited to Harpers Bizarre). Another fact: the D. in the poem refers to Damien Hirst, wealthy influential visual artist who brought us such masterpieces as "LSD" and "Crystal Skull".
