John,

Many thanks for your thoughts on this, and I'm glad you liked it. It was fun to write and I wasn't thinking too heavily about meaning, really -- I was going for absurdism more than anything. I really liked your reading of the poem. I was wondering if it was too lightweight, so I like that you read it as a satire of fame culture -- it makes it feel a bit more weighty! It's certainly wading through that culture.

Matt
