According to the Poetry Foundation, "There are 0 Poets from Northwest".

That 0 includes Philip Whalen, Gary Snyder, and William Stafford. Not to mention a bunch of people who aren't in their database, some of whom you have met.

It should be noted that there are also 0 Poets from New England, 0 from Mid-Atlantic, 0 from South, 0 from Southwest, and 0 from West. There are only 1 Poets from all of America, and he is from Midwest: James Wright.

Canada has 3 Poets, and while I'm not going to Canada specifically for the plethora of Poets, it is exciting to learn that they have three times the Poets that my humble country does. It will all be different there!

    Technically 0 times 3 is still 0. But I guess this is a poetry blog, not a math blog. ;-)

    But there is 1 Poets in the U.S.

    I was originally going to say "someplace with infinitely more Poets than my part of the world", though.
