« Trusting the process [by Christine Thiele] | Main | This Monday at KGB: Roger Reeves + Russell Dillon »

April 25, 2014


Well laid...errr..."played," sir...

I've just spent an hilarious half hour reading through your You Were Great In Bed posts, Brian. They're the perfect antidote to the end-of-semester slog that always leaves me feeling like the ground under Paul Bunyan's feet. I love your rangy erudition. And thanks for exposing my dirty-but-flirty poem to the ether.


And my pleasure, Leslie. I love the website, the audience for the website, and the forum that is Best American Poetry. And I love your work. And Paul Bunyan says hi!

I still have not received the book I purchased, came out April, 2014? Anyone that can help?
