Another thing

Maybe I should point out that Steve Martin's debut album was called Let's Get Small. Maybe that might explain his presence in the poem below. Sort of.

Or maybe not.

Paul - Got to look at your new chapbook last night. IT is ravishing. I think I know some of those poems...I loved it. Now I'm looking forward even more to the next book!

I love Let's Get Small," and find it to be almost completely unique in that it's primary tactic in being funny is playing the part of being a bad comedian. You know, how he keeps talking about how the show's going to start soon, sight gags (on record!), prat falls, banjos. It takes a genious to make bad comedy funny.

Which makes Billy Collins the Steve Martin of poetry?
