100 poems a day for 100 days makes me 6 days behind

Thanks to Preeta Samarasan for bringing my attention to "Starting Today: Poems for the First 100 Days," a project by poets Arielle Greenberg and Rachel Zucker. The premise is very simple: "Every day for the next 100 days we will post a new poem by a contemporary American poet—a poem written for and during the first 100 days of this new administration." Day one, for example, is Elizabeth Alexander's inauguration poem. Which means I guess I'm only five days behind. In any case, you can bet I'll be following this project daily.
