from the Montgomery Advisor:
Huntsville doc publishes poetry with medical touch (Dr. Scott Williams . . . no relation to WCW . . . is a family practitioner. Sound familiar?).
The short poem's title, "TMJ," refers to temporomandibular joint disorder, a painful jaw condition. But it's really about miscommunication, Williams said.
Williams said another poem, "Heart Defect," will appear in an upcoming issue of Annals of Internal Medicine.
An interesting essay on pleasure and wisdom in poetry over at Alfred Corn's place:
Aut prodesse volunt aut delectare poetae.
(Poets wish either to instruct or to delight.)
—Horace, Epistles, “Ars poetica”
Delight is the chief if not the only end of poesy: instruction can be admitted but in the second place, for poetry only instructs as it delights.
—John Dryden, An Essay of Dramatic Poesy
[A poem] begins in delight and ends in wisdom.
—Robert Frost, “The Figure a Poem Makes”
