This blog makes my brain scatter all over the place. Do Mammon and the Muse find their nexus here? It all seems though for the benign purposes of A-Muse-Ment... Most poet bloggers have blogrolls, here we have a blog rollcall. One poet one day at a time. And the laureate position... will this eventually be a sinecure? Can I apply? What would my duties be? Or is this duty-free? Is Billy here Billy Collins in disguise? (Actually I think that's Ted Kooser) Hmmm...
The attraction of a list... as soon as I saw the list of 100 blogging poets, yes, I confess, I wanted to be on it! To be chosen among the thousand or more out there! The power of lists: Any Joe Blow (or Billy Blow) can set up a list like that, and it draws you in. Like the queue you see forming around a block for a movie YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW. (Until you find out what it is...) Better than being listless, in any case.... And to be named laureate..... ! Now that Mr. Billy Blow knows of my existence (yes, I saw his site URL on my site meter, I assume it's him), I want to keep track, the suspense he has created is truly getting to me!
But I must be thankful to him. He is leading me to my enlightenment.
