Re: [JoanneMerriam] Introduce Yourself!
[In reply to]
My name is Tory. I am a poet (in training) currently embroiled in the much glamorized, but realistically stressful, MFA application process. I live in LA, and desperately, desperately, desire to vacate and acquaint myself with a part of the country that cares a little less about Paris Hilton. Just "leave Britney alone!"
My favorite contemporary poets include Henri Cole, Charles Wright, W.S. Merwin, Frederick Seidel, Matthea Harvey, Li-Young Lee, Susan Wheeler, Natasha Tretheway, Ben Lerner and Lucie Brock-Broido. Other favorites include Sylvia Plath, Wallace Stevens, May Swenson, Frank O'Hara James Merrill, e.e. cummings, Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Bishop, James Wright, Allen Ginsberg, Gertrude Stein, and John Berryman.
I'm glad to be here!
Who told you I was a racist? Was it...a minority?
