So, why can't they just publish the poem -- found during National Poetry Month, no less! -- instead of just taunting us with the fact of its existence?


From Yahoo!: "A previously unpublished poem by Tennessee Williams, described as having been 'written out of absolute, complete despair,' has been discovered in his blue test booklet from a college course in 1937. The 17-line poem, titled 'Blue Song,' has been acquired by Washington University in St. Louis, where Williams, as a student in his mid-20s, plummeted into depression before fleeing the city he said he despised."

Read the rest (but, alas!, not the poem).
