Of course, contemporary lyric might ought to all blur together, come to think of it. In place of the "unified speaking voice," there's that suffused, dispersed subjectivity floating around. Not to mention flarf, which is all about mining the collective pop unconscious. If Picasso and Braque signed each other's paintings, then why worry if you can't tell who wrote which poem, or if one seems pretty much like the next?
