I doubt Cowboy poetry pushes the boundaries but it needs to be heard. I'm not going to pony up (pun intended) the money to read it or hear it read. Most people aren't and it is my guess that it needs public and private support. Art is art - no one likes all of it, but it is necessary that it exists. And if we don't understand it or don't like we should continue to support it publicly for the people who do understand it. Art like sex should be allowed to find its own boundaries if it is to be truly enjoyed.
