Wow, Kasey's weariness with contemporary poetry resonates, and also seems like something Ionesco lamented about when he recognized parts of his practice being coopted into the mainstream, while ignoring other parts that helped to shape the ideological whole of his work.
On a more positive note, I just came back from the grad student run "informal" reading series at my college (ie. beer & cookies, not wine and Euro-cheeses, no faculty around), and they take the opportunity (freedom?) to actually experiment with what a reading can mean, sometimes resulting in failures, but more often than not ending up in interesting approaches & work.
