Good poets

Two days ago, Eileen Myles published a completely incredible post on (her) being female, and on being a female poet.  It’s one of many reasons why I wish Eileen Myles were the 2011 Poet Laureate.  Today, Charles Bernstein published a post on Susan Howe’s stunning new book That This; if Susan Howe, or even Charles Bernstein, were the 2011 Poet Laureate, that would make me happy, too.  But Poncho Peligroso’s another good poet, and it makes sense to me to have Poncho Peligroso as the 2011 Poet Laureate.  There are so many good poets out there, so many folks who I think deserve to be the 2011 Poet Laureate, and some of them are female, and some are male, and some are non-binary. But I guess there can only be one, after all.

UPDATE: Success.
