Poets who build steam powered engines

Its 2012 so I dont understand why poets are still fighting to build steam powered engines,old ancient outdated poetic structures and subjects.

I respect structuralist poetry(poems build around specific rhyme schemes) and classical subject matter,because classic is classic,but as poets we need to be pushing the art forward and further not emulating the past,singularity powered,not steam powered engines. our thoughtscapses(the landscape of our thoughts) are constantly evolving,and poetry being a thought transmission mechanism,should also be evolving with it.we should be pushing to be sharing avant garde thoughts through innovative subject matter and structures,fighting to go further,where others have never been and struggling,taking an art and looking at it with the eyes of a scientist.
