Jason Camlot on David Lehman's Best American Poetry blog

Jason Camlot, seen here reading from his latest book The Debaucher, is the Chosen One.

It seems like everyone is chosing Jason Camlot, and now he has been chosen by David Lehman for inclusion on The Best American Poetry blog.

Camlot's poem "Since I have stuck my toungue..." -- a reworking of a poem by Victor Hugo -- is the first of several poems by Camlot selected for the online companion to the popular book series.

Read Camlot's poem here.

And if you like the poem, well, there's more where that came from. You should buy his book and read the rest of it. As one fan of Camlot's poetry has written, "you go, guy."*

* Honestly. Check out the comments on Lehman's blog.
