Thank you, Borders

For the serious poetry lover, Borders sent this wonderful thing today. Open Door Poetry.
It makes the internet all worthwhile.
I've spent way too much time in the non-fiction stacks.
Poets performing their own work, Music and visual accompaniment. Give yourself time to absorb it all. Say yes to Dulce LeLeche, cry with Human Death Dance, remember what a teacher did for you with What Teachers Make. Windblown Children blowing you away, Patricia Smith telling you what mattered about Dizzy, this is a front row seat.
Taylor Mali is a genius.
Listen carefully, poetry lives. What a treat, thank you Borders.
