Hi, guys.

In the intro to Singing School, Robert Pinsky says, "'Who decides what is magnificent? Who was what is a monument? Who chooses?' . . . you do: the aspirant, the true student, the passionate reader inspired to write, chooses. No curriculum or or official canon will suffice: the examples must proceed from what thrills each person. . . . Create your own anthology by typing out the writing that inspires you." So here, I'll engage in what Pinsky calls "the double labor of deciding for yourself what thrills you and studying it." One poem per week. Or more of I get excited.
