You'll Never Beat the Irish

In an interesting development, a poetry gang in Ireland, having heard about the awesome power of the Poem Depot of the Miami Poetry Collective (co-founded, with maybe ten other brilliant Miamian poets, by yours truly), through the awesome power of public radio, has taken up the site-specific poetry sales banner on the other side of the atlantipond. Further, they also, in their language there-about, propose a "a one day census of the state of the nation in poetry," which, of course, we're also already doing in Miami.

Typically, one would anticipate American writers to be influenced by the Irish, but we've reversed the flow!

Now let's all sing our songs, sing our songs...
