What do these three phrases have in common?

1. obtain from the brook

2. someoldguyswithscythes

3. it's you

Answer: they're all complete poems by Robert Grenier, the arch-minimalist of contemporary American literature and the most under-rated member of the school of Language Poetry. Ron Silliman, who is almost certainly the most over-rated of the Language Poets, has a new tribute to Grenier up on his blog.

Almost certainly? Why the hesitation?
