Before I out myself as a blogger (or someone finds me out) I thought I'd put together a link list. I want it to be more than just poetry and poetics, but I suppose that all the usual suspects one finds on poetry blogs will be included.

This morning's only thoughts (at least here) concern blogs. In the poetry community they seem to come in two distinct kinds. There are discussions on poetics, some more valuable than others, and others that are like reading diaries. The diaries are tricky because they take on that mysterious email tone where irony is often stripped of its power and things come across angry or insulting. Not that there's anything wrong with that if it's what one intended.

Oh, there seems to be a creeping third category, gossip, which is becoming popular. I won't pretend it's not fun, though I won't indulge here.

Looks like a beautiful day.
