Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

After poet Javier Sicilia''s son got killed in the drug wars raging in Mexico, a war that has killed over 35,000 people in the last five years, he is now a voice against the systemic violence taking place in our neighboring country, violence, drug lords, and organized crime that is spreading north. He finds that he cannot write poetry since his son''s death. This is where we begin our News at Eleven section this week, in the heart of National Poetry Month.

Our Back Page, the eleventh article in News at Eleven, is about two books, 100 Great Poems for Boys, and 100 Great Poems for Girls, keeping it pink and flowery for the girls, and keeping it boisterous and battling for the boys. There''s just so much good stuff this week in Great Regulars as always. And this week, I am struck as often is the case, by the tragedy and loss in our Poetic Obituaries section.

I''ll let you get to reading. Thanks for clicking in.
