In other news, I have written two decent poems in two days. I'm feeling pretty good about this.
And now, here's a special note for teachers who have talked to me about coming into their classrooms this year: If you glance at the "Upcoming Appearances" list at the top of this blog, you'll note that my schedule is wide open. Nary a National Poetry Month engagement has yet appeared. However, if previous patterns hold true, I'll start getting calls shortly for winter and spring gigs. So if you've been toying with trying to work out a residency, now is the time to contact me before someone else takes the slot you desire.
