I received a lovely email from a poet yesterday -- he was telling of his book coming out. I interacted with him on a poetry forum -- he is one of my most favorite poets writing now. I'm looking forward to his book. I have always loved being responsible for poem. It is a selfish thing to want to be a muse I'm sure but I relish it. I admit it. Anyway, he's sending me a signed copy of the book for free but I will purchase a few to give as gifts anyway.
Since I hardly stop in any more, I want to only announce it to "fans"--and you were very instrumental in inspiring/critting a lot of my work posted at the Gaz.
E.g., the new book has three "Box poems" in it which were largely inspired by your comparison of a lot of my stuff to cornell's boxes.
Anyway, the book is out for pre-order (its official release date in March 20):
Best (hope you're still here!),
