If Allegrezza hasn't already thought about the logistics of mailing the hundred chaps to the White House, I would suggest to document that moment, e.g. photos of the chaps, photos of the mailing process at his post office, et al -- those photos and related commentary could be posted on a linkable site which then could generate further discussion outside of the chaps' reception at the White House. UPDATE: he recently posted on Facebook this photo of chaps being prepared for their journey to Washington D.C.--perhaps a teaser for a larger documentation?
Indeed, I much appreciate the locofo structure of free .pdf reads for another reason: increasing the presence of poetry within the internet. This motivation, by the way, is one of the reasons Galatea Resurrects was created in the first place: the belief that just poetry’s existence in the net will help balance other types of content and in ways one can’t anticipate (a rationale somewhat addressed by my Editor’s Introduction to the inaugural issue of Galatea Resurrects).
from the overflowing brim
of a high-mind american
walked too far with
worn down heals,
the ghosts of old balance – power, its stultifying molds
