metaphysical poetry

I wonder if this PrintCulture article will become a candidate for the favorites:
Donne, Empson tells us, “from a fairly early age,” was “interested in getting to another planet much as the kids are nowadays.”

...I imagine Donne with matching sheets and curtains bearing astronauts, space shuttles and colorful planets.

...That said, it’s been more than 2 effing years since Bush outlined his big Back-to-the-Moon plans. What’s going on, people? I know we supposedly have a timeline, but are we REALLY going to Disneyland or did Daddy lie to us?
