Despite my working myself to the bone for spittle, I'm not on it.

If you or someone you love feels this is an omission, please help.

Come on guys, that shit doesn't stand for anything. How do you think SPT feels, or Mills College. On the other hand St Mary's is sure well represented. Is that in California?

Hmm all you want. I'm just saying: Places where poetry is on the move are bound by their/its (low-lying, contingent) nature to escape the notice of entities like "poets.com" until years after the fact. That doesn't mean the good work of Adam's Books and Pegasus Downtown isn't appreciated. It means that poetry tourists with their fistsful of dollars will have a harder time finding them, which oh yeah I see the problem now.

And please don't mistake New Yipes for haters. We know perfectly well where St. Mary's and its Soda Center are located. Just suprised to see it ranked in 3 out of 4 statewide categories is all. Maybe someone on staff had a hand in that. But plenty of great writers come out of there. How many of your readers know that New Narrative co-originator Bruce Boone was a St. Mary's grad? Or that New Yipes was named after New Narrative? Q.E.D.

A little embarrassing to be caught awake at this hour on a Sunday. Don't worry folks, we haven't slept all week.
