speaking of favorite poets, i can read d.a.powell’s work for days, especially his collection “cocktails”. i had the honor of being a Teaching Assistant for him for 2 semesters during my MFA at Univ. of San Francisco, and he is also a great teacher. anyways, i mention him now because i just listened to his reading of two poems over at the poetry foundation podcast, which it seems is now off the shelf at NPR. check it out.
