« Interviews With Poets-Day 2-- Carl Phillips [by Erin Belieu] | Main | Alan Ziegler Returns! »

Wish I could have been there. Sounds really stimulating. Thanks for this excellent write up.

This is a terrific refresher. I was there (in the back)and could have easily listened to those two talk for hours. Thank you for providing this awesome account of the evening.

how will I know when it's time to compose a poetry book?

That the night the day
remains the same for poets
is well known

we all read each others poetry
that too is well known

we enjoy the weather too
that too is well known

but that no one can compose
like me and you

that also should now be well known
hope you wish too....
