About the Poems
by Nate Pritts
A list of things that contributed to the series [All my poems start]
: my Introduction to Poetry class, Fall 2006: Lora, Blade, Andi & Claire.
: Larry Fagin’s THE LIST POEM.
: Gina Myers sending me Larry Fagin’s THE LIST POEM.
: persistent anxiety that all my poems, if left to their own devices, start the same way.
: my inability to write a “real” list poem / my desire to write a “real” list poem.
: the second floor reading room at the Northwestern State University library where I met my Introduction to Poetry class every Monday & Wednesday. Windows & couches.
