Fish gotta swim and poets gotta make a living (somehow).  Check out NPR’s article on poets’ second jobs (“On Dissections to Depositions: Poets’ Second Jobs”) from research assistant in molecular biology (Katherine Larson, recent winner of the Yale Series of Younger Poets competition), lawyer (Monica Youn), radiation oncologist (C. Dale Young), undertaker (Thomas P. Lynch), farmer (Wendell Berry) to Iraq war veteran (Brian Turner).
