Review of "One Shies at the Prospect of Raising Yet Another Defense of Cannibalism" by Josh Bell

"One Shies at the Prospect of Raising Yet Another Defense of Cannibalism" by Josh Bell, the Briggs-Copeland Lecturer on English at Harvard, was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on November 21, 2013.  A link to the poem, including the poet's notes, may be found here:

This extremely prosaic "poem" has quite a bit in it about "you" kissing movies and movies not caring much that you do.  More rambling nonsense out of Harvard, I guess.  Makes me glad I'm an Amherst man.
