Jonathan Mayhew has defended the tactic of pointing the finger at Ms. Houlihan's poems well enough that I don't have to. But I will simply add that Houlihan defines herself as a poet and her poetry is therefore fair game. I even think we're obligated to consider her poetry in this case, because it's something that we can demonstably show that a) we know where to "locate" her work in a way she doesn't know how to locate the work she criticizes; b) we can show that even by what we presume are her own standards it's just not that good.
