Table of Contents for National Poetry Month Posts

All the links here are (thus far) to my LiveJournal blog. I'll try to sort them out over the next few days so the TOC is for here at Blogger, 'kay? Also? That Kiva link at the bottom allows you - yes, you - to become a microfinancier and make dreams come true for people living far, far, far below the poverty level. I hope you'll consider spreading a little wealth.
