    I offer a free reading of my blog posting, Mark Strand (Reminds Me of Anwar Sadat).
    I have always run on a pro-Mark Strand platform.

    Would love it on my shelf alongside Seidel’s Evening Man chapbook. Really interested in how these late-career poets still choose to do these limited editions. Either way, would love to read the poems inside.

    Such incredible news. “I’m thinking of Strand.”
