"As James Sherry noted years ago in L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E, a piece of paper with
nothing on it has a definite economic value. If you print a poem on it,
this value is lost. Here we have a vivid example of what George Bataille
has called general economy, an economy of loss rather than accumulation.
Poetry is a negative -- or let's just say poetic -- economy."

Charles Berstein in "How Poetry Survives" from Baffler #6
