I have to love this Poets Off Poetry essay/poem by Erin Belieu. Although, I felt a little sad thinking about poetry as the musically-inclined-but-not-musically-gifted person's pursuit. Poetry is a musical pursuit in itself and, as Belieu enacts in her deftly examined appreciation for the Broadway standards of yore, it takes aural precision. Bonus points for the Pinsky inclusion.
