Charles Simic, Poet Laureate of the United States

I see from this morning's New York Times that Charles Simic has been named Poet Laureate of the United States, replacing Donald Hall.

That's an interesting choice. I've read Simic's work, but do not know his poetry well.

The word "interesting" of course can have different connotations. But I believe that they have made a fine choice.

I don't mean anything disparaging at all.

I DO think it is an interesting choice!
