Your travelogues are legit; they're the shit.

If I say that Dave writes about basketball like a high-fiving Wallace Stevens, is that a compliment? If so, I mean it. If not, then I meant something much cooler than that.

I have to come clean. I'm bluffing about Wallace Stevens. I don't know squat about Wallace Stevens. I know Dave studied Wallace Stevens, and I know Wallace Stevens was a poet, and I know that Dave talks with a poet's rhythm, but for all I know, Dave might write about basketball more like a high-fiving Langston Hughes, to pick another poet I know almost nothing about.
