    As I&#39;ve only just begun to assemble a poetry collection, I would be very happy to win any combination of the books you&#39;re giving away.<br /><br />Oops, I&#39;ve read your post and still almost forgot to mention &#39;free poetry&#39;, so I guess I can no longer giggle at the people on the various blogs who obviously haven&#39;t read the post to which they&#39;re replying.<br /><br />

    well I&#39;ll number, sign, and stamp my book before I send it to myself the one I am thinking of well, of the 400 copy run the publisher sent me all of the remainders so<br />I got 365 pristine copies of my 1970 block-buster<br /><br /><br />that way it will be worth BIG BUCKS after I&#39;m dead.<br /><br />meanwhile: looks like The Donald will be our next president !<br />

    I linked Bök and Goldsmith for you, Ed. Nobody would care except those with a morbid interest in cultural train wrecks.<br /><br />As for the free books—a comment on <i>this blog</i> puts your name in the hopper for the books I mention above. Kelli&#39;s blog, however, lists many other participating blogs, and you have to post a comment on each one to get your name into <i>their</i> hoppers.<br /

    so<br />let me get this …. straight … whoever this Kelly Agodon is<br />SHE will randomly choose me and then I will have to send to myself two poetry books?<br /><br />One of someone&#39;s who I want to …chuck!<br />and one of mine which is terrific?<br /><br />Is it now time for me to reveal my two &quot;give-aways&quot;<br /><br />or do I &quot;sit tight&quot; and wait for the Bok/

    Bill! My guess is that your offer doesn&#39;t fit the parameters of Kelli&#39;s program because it doesn&#39;t include a book by another poet. (I think that&#39;s a requirement.) And the whole thing operates via comments posted to each participating blogger&#39;s site, and last time I looked you don&#39;t accept comments. I&#39;m sure she didn&#39;t mean to diss you! By the way, she hasn&#39;t

    i left a &quot;comment&quot; there saying i would like to give my books away free,<br /><br />but i guess Agodon knows it&#39;s in her best career interests not to mention blacklisted poets like me,<br /><br />so she deleted or never let it through her monitoring—
