  1. LOL

    on the front-channel tip: i will say that i did submit and was bummed for a minute when i didn’t see my name on the list. then i scanned for the name of another latino poet-brudah, who i know submitted, and was also slightly bummed.

    as for those who did get in: congrats to all and i’m mos def gonna read through the volume when they mail me my copy.

    actually, i submitted twice so i have another copy comin my way… maybe i can mail it out to you & ka?

  2. Would love to see it…

    Seriously though, now that I’m over my initial shock and feel assured that I hadn’t gone blind and that we all were absent from the list, making me feel confident once again in my eyeglass prescription, I must extend my congrats to those who are on the list.

    And besides, I’ve been at this for over 17 years by my reckoning, so I can hardly expect them to consider me a new poet, anyway. :)
