" Outlaw, " as in " Outlaw Bible of American Poetry, " usually means a resentful poet who feels rejected, usually for good reason, by the national poetry establishment. The poem posted by she -whose-name-I-won't-mention is actually pretty good, entertaining in a cheeky sort of way. It's not the work of an OUTLAW though; he's breaking no laws, transgressing no received opinions. He's just being clever and flippant, hoping to suggest something profound happening beneath his poem's surface. A typical poem by a moderately talented poet, the kind of thing " Rattle" magazine publishes all the time as if it's daringly innovative.
