It got me a book deal, so I'm going to say yes, it matters

Tomorrow night at 8:00 I will be taking the "pro" side in a debate on the subject "Does Poetry Still Matter?", hosted by the Jinx Society downstairs at Lolita Bar (northeast corner of Broome and Allen on the Lower East Side, one block south and three west of the Delancey Street stop on the F train). My opponent will be J.R. Taylor of the New York Press, and I can only hope his preparations will be as last-minute as mine are proving to be. The debate is free and the drinks are whatever they cost. Questions will be taken from the audience (but not by force).

I suppose the whole argument would hinge on what it means to "matter". Perhaps poetry never mattered? If it did, could we tell if it "matters" less now?
