poetry man

The other day I was listening to NPR   and heard a bit of Robert Frost reciting his inaugural poem for JFK.
But that's not what the story was about.  
The story was really about this year's inaugural poem (only the fifth). It be composed by one "Richard Blanco".  I have to admit, I'd never heard of him before.

He's the first Latino poet to win this honor, and the youngest.
Oh, and he's gay.

So, being the curious superficial soul that I am, I promptly did an image search of him...and well....
I can't say the snippets of his work I've read are moving me, but, hello!... this picture is.
Hubba, huh?
