The Academy of American Poets is for people who love poetry. Our membership is nearly 9,000 strong and growing, and our programs reach over 20 million people every year. Our programs include Poets.org, the Poets Forum, Poem in Your Pocket Day, National Poetry Month, American Poet magazine, the Poem-A-Day email series, the Poetry Audio Archive, educational initiatives, readings and events, awards and prizes, and so much more. We’ve been doing this since 1934, and we still think it's fun.

For Russ

Christ
You’d think it would all be 
Pretty simple.
This tree will never grow. This bush
Has no branches. No.
I love you. Yet.
I wonder how our mouths will look in twenty-five years
When we say yet.
