Poets on postage stamps


The Poetry Foundation informs us that the United States Post Office is honoring 10 poets on postage stamps. The list features Elizabeth Bishop, Joseph Brodsky, Gwendolyn Brooks, E. E. Cummings, Robert Hayden, Denise Levertov, Sylvia Plath, Theodore Roethke, Wallace Stevens, and William Carlos Williams. I like the idea of Sylvia Plath on one of my letters but why not Charles Bukowski – didn’t he write Post Office? (Just kidding, Hell will freeze over before Bukowski is honored by the US Postal people.)
