I plan on reading Morrison's book of poem this month! How ironic. I don't think it is bad that celebrities take advantage and publish their poems -- I just prefer that they be good ones. I'm curious about Franco's work, since some interviews I've read with him are overly confusing....his answers tend to be very convoluted.


I agree...better they be good. I also try to accept the poems in the spirit they were intended. If they're meant for YA or kids...then that's another criteria. I came across one of Franco's poems in American Poetry Review...so I'm expecting a lot from him!
