People are appreciative of poetry that keeps pace with the way their minds work. And it mirrors the appeal of music and art in that the variety available guarantees a steady supply - compatible with whatever frame of mind they're in. Also; just as our taste in music and art can expand with exposure, so it is with poetry. I buy Garrison's books knowing that I won't enjoy each and every poem in order to support creativity. Discovering even just a poet (or 2 or 3) that I want to delve deeper into is reason enough to expose myself to what he offers.
