Dear Bin Ramke,If Martin Arnold on page 2 of your current issue (Vol.37, No.3) ended his poem ('The Thank You Amputations') by saying something like "April ain't the cruelest month," I imagine that neither he nor you would presumably feel it necessary to mention Eliot/Wasteland/etc.——But since his last line there on page 2 ("But it matters what your thank you's amputate") seems to be refuting an obscure line ("And it doesn't matter what the thankyou amputates") from an obscure poem in an obscure book ('Poem,' p. 23, "Auto-Necrophilia," 1971) by an obscure poet (me), shouldn't he, in your editorial judgement, somehow indicate that arcane/recondite source?
