The New Patronage Killed Social Activism in Poetry

I just wrote a new essay I thought a few of you might be interested in -- it addresses both Tony Hoagland's poem "The Change" (and the current controversy over same) and Juliana Spahr's recent piece on the alleged "privatization of poetry." I'm hoping these topics will be relevant here, both because many applicants were speaking on Facebook recently about Hoagland, and because my take on all this boiling controversy actually has a lot to do with (as the essay details) the role of the MFA in contemporary poetry.
