Also of note, Reb Livingston of No Tell Motel is running the annual Best Poetry of 2009 Holiday list up at the No Tell Motel blog.  I'm not one for holidays or "Best Of" anything, but this is a different beast.  It's a way to highlight myriad independent press titles, using the holidays as a way to give exposure to poets & presses that do not normally get such a bump.  Let's face it, the poetry book rarely sells.  And No Tell's list does a good amount of lifting here.  The Wheelhouse/David Wolach list goes up Weds.  It was very difficult to pick works, so I decided to list books that a) I love, that b) came out in 2009, and that c) have not yet been represented on the site and that have a good chance of not getting on the site otherwise.  So many great books, such as the new books by Ana Bozicevic and Rachel Levitsky, just to name a couple, are up there now.  Here's ours:
--Rob Halpern, Disaster Suites (Palm Press)
--David Buuck, The Shunt (Palm Press)
--Erica Kaufman, Censory Impulse (Factory School)
--Jane Srague, The Port of Los Angeles (Chax Press)
--Jules Boykoff, Hegemonic Love Potion (Edge Books)
