Overlooking Poetry | Letter to the Editor 

To the Editor:

What gives? You couldn't celebrate National Poetry Month in the pages of your April issue? Not in the Book Reviews? Not in the Short Takes? The one and only mention a mediocre poem on the bottom right corner of page 57? Shame on you.

—J. R. Solonche

Professor Emeritus of English at SUNY Orange
