1.
The writers of Two and a Half Men and the aesthetic disciples of Jorie Graham, while probably unfamiliar with each other’s work, both traffic in the same vocation — namely, as Purveyors of Tedium.

2.
Three possible improvements to the work of Jorie Graham:

  • A Jorie Graham poem with a laugh track.
  • A Jorie Graham poem written in front of a live studio audience.
  • A Jorie Graham poem closed captioned for the hearing impaired.
