there's an article [probably have to register to read it] profiling local poet frank andrick. he's had some major health problems recently. richard hansen, co-owner of the book collector and publisher of poems-for-all and all around great guy, is hosting a benefit for andrick early next month.

richard says in the article, "If you take up the life of the poet in America, you are taking up the life of destitution and poverty". which reminds me of a recent post by jim mccrary recounting when he and his wife were robbed in mexico. they took everything except for mccrary's poems, which the thieves threw back at him. that's how poetry is valued in the world.

i'll post the definitive date when i know it. stop by and help support a good poet.
