Take heart, Kate! There are more real live poets and they're getting a lot of attention right now. Check out the link "This Is All Your Fault" to see Christine Hamm, my fellow graduate student, who's just published another volume of poems. I'm going to her reading on November 17th, so I'll let you know how that goes. You can read a sample of her work at her website, and the poems are pretty cool.
And speaking of Kate, what's up with the lack of full-body costume shots? We can't get the full effect if we only see your head. Not that there's anything wrong with your head. There's not, and your hair looks pretty.
