I have. A number of them. Yours among them.

Technically speaking Taj Mahal is about 40 pages too short to qualify; even as a chapbook it's on the very short end.

Original comment above. Below is what I meant:

Ah, got it. I understand. Thanks

Well, you can get my point, which is that reading 7 poems in a row is different than reading 40, (not to mention many things, like for instance the time between when I put out that collection and now) or you can do what you just did in your comments, which I'll refrain from calling anything but less than thoughtful.

Did you want a ribbon for reading a book of poetry or did you want to offer a different insight into the experience of reading a book of poetry via, idk, communicating about that experience and how it differed from mine?

Like in the conversation of "ref hating on modern poetry and expressing how she doesn't feel her writing fits into it," where does throwing shade bc you bought a minichapbook jawn of mine even fit in? I think the whole point of my argument is I don't feel my writing fits in with the ethos of the modern-day poetic community? Smdh fuckin lol

What? I have lots of books of poetry and I count yours among them. You let me know that it's too short to meet that qualification and I replied with "ok."

I didn't think you were hating on poetry? Not sure where this is coming from.

My favorite book of poetry is David Berman's "Actual Air." You should add it to your list.
