The 50 Poems Now anthology was something that the poetry editor at Knopf came up with as an idea, and reached out to me to see if I was interested in executing it. If you read the introduction to the anthology then I explain the process.

...And actually I don't know very many poets--in fact I regularly correspond by email with a grand total So the vast majority of the poets in the anthology are people I've never met, a few I'd never heard of. In the future, maybe don't assume the worst.

It's always good to hope for the best and fear the worst. It keeps your hopes at a reasonable level.

Edmund, I always fear the worst, but sometimes it turns out even worse than I'd feared - a current example being fake-President Trump.

Surely Ashbery would win this:

The inert lifeless mass calls out into space:
Seven long years and the wall hasn't been built yet...
