fuck you, Poets HOuse

fuck you, Poets House snobs—

vanity books "will not be accepted"—

you won't "accept" my books? Fine.

Here's what "Poets House" says in their shill for free copies to include in their "showcase"—:

Which titles qualify for inclusion?

All books of poetry (full-length collections, anthologies and chapbooks), poetry-related prose, poetry audio and videotapes, CD's, and computer media published since June 2010 qualify for exhibit. Books from vanity press publishers will not be accepted. Books of poetry published outside the United States are included in a separate portion of the exhibit, but they are not listed in the Directory.
