It’s a motley crew today:

1. A new & mighty & massive Poets off Poetry by Dana Ward.  I mean, this essay is sort of epic and I love that it loves pop music (“Call Me Maybe”!)  in a totally genuine way.  The energy (and sustained energy) is amazing.  Really proud to be able to publish this.  Thank you Dana and the professional moving companies at!

2.  Speaking of pop music:
