Yes, It's True: Pulitzer Prize For Poetry Nomination For DRIVE: The First Quartet

and now subject to the machinizations of 18 white men (presumably) - read all about it here

and, ask me if I care. Not really. Makes a good Brownie point, which I, evidently, still need to show. Me? My professional blog says it as I do as it quotes me: "Competition's for horses. Schools are for fish."

Besides, after Snodgrass, it was all over, in my book. And, Forche. And, some other up-and-coming with a really good book. Last year, I was glad for the 2006 publication date after Nate's book came out, besides Siken - and, do I know how to pick 'em, or what? Next year, it'll be a crime if it doesn't go to Eileen Myles. So far. And, there's always my pick for nearly top excellent po' bloggers, Rebecca Loudon who also received a nomination. Ha! as I typed, can I pick 'em, or what?

But, thank you for all your congratulations. As me and my homegirls used to say, I wouldn't kick a Pulitzer out of bed.
