There were a lot of great articles (on the craft of poetry in particular) cropping up on the web the past couple of weeks. I was especially drawn to Dorianne Laux's meditation on the intersection of pop music and poetry in her writing life; I enjoy hearing from poets who have similar feelings about pop music. Happy net-surfing, dear reader!
