When You Need a Poem NOW, Damn It

by Ron Hogan

The Page doesn't waste a lot of time: it just links to a bunch of great articles with enough of a pullquote so you can figure out what they're about, and then it has a sidebar where it links to new poems that have been published online, in venues ranging from The Paris Review to Slate. It's a brilliant quick fix, but be warned: you may think you're only adding another three seconds to your blog-reading time, but you'll probably end up spending five to ten minutes (at least) following the links.
