America! Your new poet laureate is Ted Kooser, every neo-formalist's favorite underdog. He works for an insurance company, prompting mordant wit (I wish) Billy Collins to say, I won't be the first or the last to compare him to Wallace Stevens." Yes, but when the comparison begins and ends with "they both worked for insurance companies," that's not really saying much.
