    I'll have to let my drivel speak for itself, as do we all. As to whether poetry and politics mix, I'd refer you to Layton, McGrath, Neruda, Cardenal, etc. You may also want to consider the scope of what this particular form of civil service requires in Colorado before you dismiss it. From my point of view, the time to judge what I do with this gig will be in four years, in retrospect;

    dear Joseph,<br /><br />you&#39;re too big for my small pond. Politics and poetry never mix in my world: Poet Laureates are a type of civil servant promoted to write statist drivel, always and ever. Say goodbye to originality and true creativity.<br /><br />Joseph, I like you but I do abhor the mantle you&#39;ve begun to wear. <br /><br />Adios!
