“Clearly, there is something about poetry that rattles and mystifies people.”

-from Matthew Zapruder’s Why Poetry (Ecco, 2017)

When I report publishing a poem in my online Faculty Activity Report in the section called “Publications and Intellectual Contributions,” I need to select its “publication type” from a drop-down menu of pre-selected options. So I need to scroll past such entries as “Book, Chapter in Non-Scholarly Book-New,” “Book, Scholarly-New,” “Computer Program,” “Conference Proceeding,” “Handouts,” “Law Review,” “Material Regarding New Courses/Curricula,” “Technical Report,” and “Working Paper” to find the category “Other” at the very bottom.
