What I want to do now is read poems and write about them, and here's where I'm going to do it. Instead of buying new collections of poetry, for the next year I intend to reread every collection I already own (and then, fellow poets, I promise I will buy more)--it's a surfeit of a different sort, a mix-tape mashup of a pile of slim volumes most of whose spines have not been cracked nor pages dog-eared--pristine, I'm saying. Unacceptable.
I want to know about the poems I own, other people's poems, and I suspect this reacquaintance will tell me something about my own work, may bring on an upswell. Anyway, I'm going to find out, and I'm going to tell you. Lucky.
