Introducting the new column Ask a Poet!
Why live in the dark when you can ask a poet?
Do you think poets and their poems are mysterious, difficult or a bit cultish? Are there questions you have always wanted to ask a poet but have been too scared (or dreading the long-winded answer) to ask?
Well, lucky you are because in the vein of the ground-breaking syndicated column and book by Gustavo Arellano, “Ask a Mexican,” this is a place where you can stop tip-toeing around quirky poet relatives and friends and their notebooks of garden haikus and you can finally ask a poet.
Don’t be shy. There is no question too offensive, bewildered or cranky.
