I've started a thread at Musing on Mastery so people who want to celebrate sports poetry don't have to do it in the Amanda Gorman thread.

Martin, thanks for the link. I was impressed with the analysis, so clicked on the YouTube channel (New Dream) to see what else they've done and am excited to explore it, too. Here it is.

Julie mentioned earlier an online event — Lift Every Voice: Why African American Poetry Matters — presented by the Library Foundation of Los Angeles. I tuned into it last evening. It was excellent. It was hosted by Kevin Young, poetry editor at The New Yorker Magazine. Amanda Gorman is the last poet to read. Here it is.

.
Finally a reason to watch the Super Bowl halftime show (or maybe she follows the pre-game sit-down interview with Biden?)

It flies in the face of everything Super Bowl halftime shows have ever been. I don't know if I should see it as a harbinger of hope or a doomsday prayer.

Throw us a Hail Mary Amanda.
