Verbs blush and run around naked.

There really should be a Bulwer-Lytton contest for book jacket or review writing:
“Real poets never vanish, their language is reborn to thrill us ‘in the wild zone’. Direct, intimate, magical, ‘honey washed’, Landis Everson’s words ‘purr’ before us. Verbs blush and run around naked. His skills are astutely dressed up, bones become poems. Which are constant and fulfilling, honestly shining in the unity time.” —Joanne Kyger

I know the book's been well received and I liked the poems that I found online. For that matter, Joanne Kyger's a respected poet and writer in her own right. But, "verbs blush and run around naked?"

At least she gave the verbs some dignity
It sounds like the porn version of Sesame Street.
This is what happened to the verbs immediately after the Fall.
Fallen verbs? It does have a nice ring to it.
