Remember that scene from the play Night of the Iguana by Tennessee Williams when a woman talks about a great poet who’s been working on 1 poem for something like 20 years? That woman was serious.
Nobody here is going to say the Quotable Poet has slowed down anywhere near that much because with 4 published books of poetry (so far) you can say he averages a lot more than 1 every 20 years. But the man himself admitted in a recent Facebook status update that the number of his poems (shared on the Internet anyway) have been more like a trickle than a flow.
True this is: once released, they usually hit with enough punch to make you feel like it was worth the wait. But keeping up with the different online venues can be a pain. So instead of a single poem of the month for April, here’s a National Poetry Month 2013 round-up list of the NEWEST poems we could find posted from 2009 to 2013. It kicks off with the most recent slammer, Realms of Emerging Light.
