Thanks for Curtis, Barack, Kim, Kevin, blogspot

I've taken it upon myself to maintain a poetry blog for the great K. Curtis Lyle, until someone sits down the poet and shows him the easy ways of the blogspot.

Today I uploaded a new long poem by Curtis, Barackutopia, which I won't pretend to be able to summarize, right off the bat.

It is and isn't about the Barack Obama phenomenon. Because it is, I'm illustrating this brief note with Kevin Belford's Thanksgiving cartoon for The St. Louis American; because it isn't, I illustrated the poem itself with a suggestive painting by local artist Kim Richardson.
