Giving a whole new meaning to syntax
The poet for the inaugeration is Richard Blanco.
Blanco's books include Looking for The Gulf Motel (University of Pittsburgh Press), Directions to the Beach of the Dead (University of Arizona Press) and City of a Hundred Fires (University of Pittsburgh Press)
You can damn well bet I just ordered all of them. I would like to be completely prepared for a substantive conversation should the poet ever need to practice his syntax.
