I'm pleased to announce that I wrote the Best poem in Issue 1 whose list of "participants" after all is, to quote Ron Silliman, "both long and impressive".

I didn't actually download the issue as it's too big for my landline-constrained e-access here on the mountain. But, nonetheless, I've no doubt that I wrote the best poem in the issue (Someone alert me, please, to what I titled it....if I titled it).

I'm also pleased to see that they didn't include a poem by that poetaster Barack Obama, given that Moi, too, am running for President.

I am less pleased, however, to note a rather significant typo in my great poem. Poetry editors are so lax nowadays. There goes my hope that they have the discrimination to pick my poem for Pisscart Prize nomination...
