There has been a lot of hoo-ha both in the poetry
and non-poetry universe about the merits (and demerits)
of Elizabeth Alexander's inauguration poem.
It's been amusing and fascinating to follow
these conversations/arguments/defenses -- my favorites
are on Reb Livingston's blog and Collin Kelley's blog.
(Be sure to read the comments!)
The following -- which made me laugh out loud --
is from a conversation at The Guardian:
How many poets does it take to change a light bulb?
And one million more to say how much better
they would have done at changing it.
