one week!

Keeping Me Still comes out in one week! Oh the jitters….

I am so happy that it is coming out at the  beginning of poetry month. Poetry Month is a holiday for me. I put up my free poetry society poster (Whitman this year), I read a poem to my composition students at the beginning of each class, I carry a poem in my pocket.

I’ve read criticism of poetry month before, but I say why not have a month devoted to celebrating and promoting what you love? If there was a national cake month, I’d be all over that.  or a national Anthropologie month. or a national “You’ve Got Mail” month. 

so let us read poetry! and be completely silly about it, if need be. poetry is so serious and scholarly anyway; i think it could use some tom-cruise-esque displays of affection
