The secret lives of poets

My friend Claire sent me this quote from Overheard in New York (if you are not familiar with this site, go there and get acquainted. It's a wonderful thing):
Man reading Richard Scarry's What Do People Do All Day?: "What? Poets do not write poetry all day! They work shitty jobs in design firms and sell things to assholes from San Diego! (turns page) And writers don't write all day! They pick up laundry for Park Slope bitches!"
--Overheard by: Amused Bookseller, Children's Section, Barnes & Noble, Court Street
