Fantastic post! I wish I'd not been distracted by a deadline or I'd have entered my ballot and joined the excellent company. I love the choices. Stephen Dunn is perfect, because he is the best basketball player among US poets. Koch's The magic of Numbers is a magical choice. As for myself, I think I would assign "La Bella Dame Sans Merci" to selfish Carmelo Anthony, and see if he rises to the vision. -- DL

Likely Anthony and the Knicks still will need that poem next year. So let's stick with your vision of Steve Nash schooling the young Lin and Shumpert. CW

Catherine, I want you to promise you'll cover the Knicks beat for us next season (starting immediately). Bad typist that I am, I just produced and corrected an anagrammatic version of the team's name that sometimes seems apt enough: The Kincks. Maybe they should play "Well-Respected Man About Town" at halftime at the Garden. -- DL

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
