National Poetry Month is officially past, alas. However, every day is good for poetry! If you happened to miss this great segment from The Colbert Report, check it out here at Crooks and Liars, as Sean Penn and Stephen Colbert square off in a "Meta-Free-For-All."
This also allows me to give a shout-out to the moderator, former National Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky. Pinsky is a great speaker and teacher, with a witty, funny touch, and if you have a chance to hear him speak, I'd recommend it. A previous post mentioned the wonderful Favorite Poem Project, which Pinsky runs with Maggie Dietz, and I can't plug it or them enough.
