Quick! FREE Poetry! 5 Days to Enter

83  deg ~ big rain this morning, now gray and breezy with lots of lovely humidity

As a member of the Academy of American Poets, I just received my copy of the 2009 Whitman winner, Heredities by J. Michael Martinez.  I was lucky enough to meet the poet and get a signed copy of this book in Denver at AWP. Now, the book is nearing the top of my to-read pile, YAY!

Good News, Dear Readers!  I’m giving away the copy that just landed on my doorstep.  Please leave a comment below if you are interested.  On Tuesday, July 13, I’ll use the random number generator to pick a winner.
