It's a great article - and not just because BOA is mentioned by name. It's a great article because it's accurate and it covers topics that we think about every day here at BOA. Some might read this as a reason to throw up one's hands and say "Why Bother?" but we see it as motivation to keep getting the work of talented poets into people's hands. Who needs poetry? YOU need poetry! And so do we. [Poetry Keep Flame Alive Despite the Dark]
