August 8: Poet of the Week, Nikky Finney, Acceptance Speech

Yes, I have chosen a Poet of the Week.  It is Nikky Finney.  I will include some poems by Finney later this week, but, for tonight, I want you to watch her acceptance speech of the 2011 National Book Award for Poetry.  The speech is pure poetry, from beginning to end.  And, as John Lithgow noted, it is the best acceptance speech I have ever heard.

Saint Marty has watched this video about 20 or 30 times.

  1. I only want to throw firecrackers, but also throwing bombs. They threw firecrackers in order to attract the attention of others, confuse the enemy; throwing bombs is my real purpose. However, I can not tell you when I threw firecrackers, when throwing bombs. The game is to falsehoods, so just happy. If you feel pain in the game, it means you play the wrong.
