Although I miss rigoberto at the poetry foundation blog, I’m so happy that linh dinh and ada limon are now blogging there….two of my favorite poets! i’ve reviewed both of ada’s books and i’ve read 3 of linh’s poetry books (tho i havent reviewed them for some reason). plus, linh is coming to berkeley to read this weekend! woohoo. i would like to hear ada read someday. someday.

someone said i was ‘down with brown’ and i had thot they meant brown university and was very confused. a new expression to me, but now i understand. ‘down with whitey’ has a much different meaning tho, apparently.
