Maximism

David Lehman

What I propose is not 
  Marxism, which 
  is not dead yet in 
  the English department, 
Not maximalism, which was 
  a still-born alternative 
  to minimalism, 
Nor Maxism, which rests on 
  adulation of Max 
  Beerbohm, parodist 
  nonpareil, 
But maximism, the love 
  of adages, 
Or Maximism, the advocacy of 
  maximum gastronomic 
  pleasure on the model 
  of a meal at Maxim's 
  in Paris in, say, 1950. 
Is that clear?
