PD snippets

Poetry Daily snippets. This is the one at http://poems.com -
Poetry Daily is an anthology of contemporary poetry. Each day, we bring you a new poem from new books, magazines, and journals.

Poems are chosen from the work of a wide variety of poets published or translated in the English language. Our most eminent poets are represented in the selections, but also poets who are less well known. The daily poem is selected for its literary quality and to provide you with a window on a very broad range of poetry offered annually by publishers large and small. Included with each poem is information about the poet and the poem's source.

Our purpose is to make it easier for people to find poets and poetry they like and to help publishers bring news of their books, magazines, and journals to more people.

Poetry Daily is a publication of The Daily Poetry Association, a not-for-profit charitable corporation under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Turns out there is another Poetry Daily (http://poetrydaily.com), ad supported, selling "poetry related products," and owned by Syndicated News Network. Does this mean Williams was right about poetry being news? Ads tell you to "write poetry and earn," browse eBay for love poems and download poetry writing software. Self-described ad "News, Blogs, and Videos featuring Poetry and Poets around the globe," a disclaimer advises, "We are not responsible for the views and opinions of external websites," which make up most if not all site content.
