Runaway Jury Award for the Poetry GG

http://www.goodreports.net/essays/jury61/htm

I enjoyed sparring and agreeing with Alex Good and Jacob Mooney. And it was the first time I've read all of the books on the final five for the poetry Gov-Gen. This space has been busy gathering moss and mildew, and a few crickets continue to rub their legs in the vicinity, but I plan to let work taper off until the new year, so I'll be taking time to read some of the many other titles on the year's GG longlist. I'll be posting mini-reviews of them here.

Congratulations to Richard Greene on Boxing the Compass.

Enjoyed the exchange, Brian. And thanks for the nod, eh.

No problem. And thanks for the 20 spot. (Oops!)

Nuffin to talk about. You only said I was "good"; Brian said I should have been considered for the prize. Ya get what ya pay for.
