there are over seven billion human beings on this planet. there is absolutely nothing i can do that no one of those others cannot and it is bizarrely egotistical for anyone to believe otherwise
>>
>>7573784

because I'm in a weird state where my poetry is far better than anything published in The Paris Review or in Poetry mag, but absolutely garbage compared to my current idols Hart Crane and Wallace Stevens. And I'm just kind of depressed thinking about how, even though there are still poetry readers today, I fear that there will be no generations in the future to read what I write, even if I reach my set goals and somehow surpass or equal my idols. It's cripplingly depressing. I'm playing video games endlessly for the first time in years because of it. It feels awful to be one of the last generations alive before the West crumbles and the United States Empire goes the way of Rome. We had such a great tradition of poetry going.

People have been saying that every day since the United States became a global power.

Only you can suicide yourself!

they also were saying it in a time where people read literature and kept up a poetic and literary tradition. With the decline of its literature, a state fails. I really am quite positive that within our lifetimes the United States will fail spectacularly.

Listen, son, if the United States were to "fail spectacularly" within our lifetime, the last thing you're going to have to worry about is literature.

If the U.S. goes, the whole world's probably gone.

To reiterate, I'm not talking slow decline here over centuries here. I'm talking about that quick, sudden fall.

The biggest superpower in the world falling within 1 generation would be the biggest event in the history of the world. Unprecedented. Never happened.

So chill out, homey.

kek "within 1 generation"

The decline has been going on for a while anon, you just haven't noticed it.

I despise people like you. That smug sense of superiority, yet you don't actually do anything - you ride the high moral horse yet wallow in your own state - a mental cripple, paralized by his own insecurities. You glorify your failure, because "atleast I'm better than all of those plebeians that are getting published".

No. You're not. You're just a guy who is doing absolutely nothing. There's nothing heroic about it.

There is no dieing generation. There is no need for your Swan song. For the last few hundred years poetry was not a thing of the masses and it won't be in the future.

are you perhaps slightly braindamaged?

>>7574060

On the other hand though - How many names are there that have the starting letters Davi? Davir? Davik? Davio? Daviq? Davil?

I am willing to give her the benefit of the doubt, but really man, how are you going to make a spelling mistake when all you're typing is one singular sentence.
>>
>>7574063
I have experience my life before, so have you. It is statistically impossible that this is the first time we've been alive, and equally impossible that we never will again.

Free will is a lie. Agency doesn't exist. We're all treading familiar waters with no memories and affixed to the currents of "time" that are as unyielding as existence.

At least the cynics were openly doing nothing, showing their good-for-nothing attitude off to others. The guy I replied to was just cashing in for some internet admiration, That is despicable, atleast imo.

cold war

USA and the USSR are the worlds biggest superpower

USSR goes from being almost up-to-par with the US to sitting on the bench. Now they have to show their "power" by annexing Crimea. Fucking embarrassing.
