James Tate

is my favorite prose-poet by far. I love this man to death. I saw him recently when he read in Van Allen Hall. He is an old fragile man, with a voice like a Simpsons character. I would describe him more, but I just cannot do him justice.

I would recommend checking him out.

1). Read these poems: "The Cowboy,"

and "like a scarf,"

2). Listen to him read:
"How the Pope is Chosen" Note: this is an old recording, to hear his current voice, find one that is more recent, duh.
