"Who is the greatest poet writing today?"

Well, they don't really ask me that, but sometimes I go up to people and say, "Do you know who the greatest poet writing today is?" And usually they say either "No. Who is it?" or "Olen pahoillani, en puhu Englanti" if I am in Finland or "Robert Frost" if I am speaking to an elderly gent. But when I do come upon the No Who Is It? type I say quite simply:

"It is David Kirby."


Crispy Flotilla

or: David Kirby on suurin runoilija kirjoittaa tänään, again, when I am in Finland*

*Please don't be impressed. I am never really in Finland.
