Money for poems.... and your chicks for free

I'm getting paid for 2 poems which will very shortly be published -- received an email this morning regarding the payment arrangements. I didn't expect this to feel so good but let me tell you, it feels FANTASTIC. It's like a ride on a merry-go-round -- once you're off, you want to go around again. And again. And again. And in addition, it's total and complete validation of the sort that you need in the big bad world, where even people who like you don't give you a lot of respect for being a poet. When are you going to get a real job, eh? What does poetry do, anyway?

Now that aint workin thats the way you do it....
