The New York School as it developed at St. Mark’s, with its innumerable odes to joy, casualness, and collaboration, was forced to make way for a markedly punk-inflected new style that went even further then the first wave of CBGBs musicians did in foregrounding vulgarity, base intensity, raw passion – the poetry of figures including Eileen Myles and the freewheeling collective of writers who produced Koff magazine refused their predecessors’ rhetorical fireworks, wacky jokes, or poetic justifications. Where Richard Hell, Patti Smith, and their minions allowed for a marked literariness to inform their music and lyrics, influence for Myles, Cooper, and related New York writers went the other way in the latter part of the 1970s – punk was teaching poetry this time around.
