My friend and are reading the Marvin/Dumanis anthology Legitimate Dangers together, knowing that otherwise we’ll never get through it and all those poems will go unread.
Each week we assign ourselves two poets to read. We read them, we come back and talk about them. We call this the Legitimate Dangers Deathmatch, each week a new pairing, a fight to the bitter end. Who emerges victorious? Meaning, whose poems do we like best.
My pick: Kaminsky
Her pick: Kaminsky
WEEK 2 “Girlfight”
Carrie St. George Comer
Suji Kwock Kim
G. C. Waldrep
