When did you consider poetry?

Did I read that you taught a poetry class?

I was in a creative writing program for one year at University of New Mexico.  I mainly did it to get out of my then current job and live in New Mexico.  I was a teaching assistant.  You know, they just throw you in.  Here's 30 freshmen, make them write 8 papers and don't be shy about failing them out.  (UNM was open enrollment and F.E. was used to discourage the unwanted.)  

Second sememster they gave me a creative writing 101 class.  I was a horrible teacher, but I think only one of the 12 or so students actively hated me.  My only experience was with writing workshops I attended while getting an English BA.  It was a lot more fun than freshmen english though, for everybody concerned. 

Anyway, their Final Exam was to watch the Marx Bros' Duck Soup.
