I've been browsing the Blackbird website today - an on-line journal of literature and the arts which has lots of fine poetry to offer. Today's poet is Katie Ford who has published two collections including Colosseum (Graywolf Press, 2008), which won the 2009 Levis Reading Prize.
As well as her poems Blackbird includes a conversation in which she mentions Tess Gallagher's comments
You don’t have to be a poet when you leave, but poems can be your companion throughout your whole life.”
