Dear Cuck

‘Dear Cuck’ takes its title from an actual email I received from someone in the poetry ‘community.’ The author proceeded to insult me in ways not very different from those showcased in the poem itself, and for reasons—I gather—of political affiliation and psychological predisposition. I wanted to tie this brand of prejudice to its literary forebears, Messrs. Pound and Eliot. I assume any reader familiar with the so-called ‘alt-right’ will know who ‘Daddy’ is.”‘Dear Cuck’ takes its title from an actual email I received from someone in the poetry ‘community.’ The author proceeded to insult me in ways not very different from those showcased in the poem itself, and for reasons—I gather—of political affiliation and psychological predisposition.
