This is no surprise and probably a sign of worse to come.

irritating insect.

Now there’s a great name for a Medium poetry publication. “Irritating Insect: Poetry for the 1% who care.” I love it.

I don’t really care too much whether Medium promotes lit or not, so long as they don’t ban it, which I’m not sure how they’d do. As long as they remain a platform where anybody can publish anything, and readers can follow their own interests, we’ll always have the option of maintaining our own counterculture here. That’s good enough for me.
