The Most Intriguing (and Sensual) Male Poets of 2006 Calendar is here! I can see it now, the young impressionable MFA grad students walking all over the AWP conference with calendars in hand, looking for the male poets of their dreams. This one pictured is of Richard Blanco, a friend from down Miami way. There are other shots of male poets that are kinda "beefcake" and will surely please with its profound imagistic thrust. If C.P. Cavafy were alive today, would he be admiring the line breaks of Randall Mann or just those abs? You can buy it here.
