Listless

My first days in exile from the Poetics list. Are those the pangs of the outcast that I feel? Maybe I just skipped breakfast. But my inbox is thanking me.

I've received quite a few cheering, supportive backchannels and comments. Stephen Vincent was kind enough to cc me a message he sent to the list, noting Zukofsky's openness to a range of cultural influences and lamenting the opposite, "insular" state. OKIR and fait accompli pointed my way. And Roger Pao has a response up at his Asian American Poetry blog.

I just wanted to tell you that I read every word of the lasagne, angel, big pictures at the end poem and thought it a masterwork of great integrity. You'll be famous.

Eh...but we know, don't we, that we can create our own "lists"...? Missed the whole brouhaha (to moi relief).

Ever in your corner...

I would love to read a more multi-cultural based poetics list. Make one!! The buffalo poetics list is so past tense...
