Five Things that Don't Suck, Poetry Week Edition

Hi! I'm going to be at my favorite poetry week of the year starting today--so I might post a FTTDS list every day, I might miss one or two days, or I might miss all of them. It's a fantastic week and definitely does not suck, but it gets busy and my world is wondrously full for a few days. 

1. reading good poems
2. talking about good poems
3. talking about all sorts of other things
4. going for a swim*
5. long walks

*or five
