How literary is to literary?

Word on the street is my songwriting is "too literary." (Or, as in the title, "to literary" as the most recent one spelt it.) At least I've been seeing this pop up on the internet here and there all of a sudden. First I heard it was in Larry's offhand response to Last Will's generously hyperbolic reference to me as a "HOF quality songwriter", a week or so ago, but now it's being said elsewhere. The long arm of Livermore? Some other "meme"? Anyway, I wouldn't disagree, necessarily, nor agree either, and in fact if someone has to be too literary it might as well be me. But I thought it worthy of mention, in my capacity as a narcissist.
