Dave, this is a wonderful post and I’m SO EXCITED to have found your blog through January’s. If you still have Google+ invites, I’d love to have one – if only to see what the fuss is about. Despite the continual death knells for blogging, it truly is the best platform I’ve found for in-depth discussion of an issue (especially one as marginal as poetry – oh how I wish it wasn’t so marginal – or do I?)

Thanks so much for your work for poetry!
