Poet Observations

Some observations about poets:

1. They like The Alone Time.

2. They like The Nature.

3. Female poets seem to be able to wear skirts and dresses without any sense of irony. It's sort of cute.

4. Just about everything is absolutely autobiographical, and acknowledged as such, where as fiction (and even memoir) writers tend to pretend the narrator or characters have no relationship with the author.

That's all I got. Second to the last workshop with Jimmy Santiago Baca is about to begin.
