To paraphrase Judy Brown

If a poem doesn’t tell you anything that isn’t part of the general consciousness of the world, then it’s not doing its job.

While John makes the point that while a single conceit is generally a good thing, it needs then to reach a critical mass and then go beyond itself. It is only a means, a mechanism, not the end.
