Support the removal of convicted pedophile Kirk Nesset's work from Poetry Magazine

The editors of Poetry Magazine should have considered the reasons why a person being considered for publication was incarcerated in the first place. Nesset isn't a marginalized person convicted of drug possession, for example, but a convicted predator who was found in possession of an enormous collection of child pornography (including of the rape of babies!). His work should not have been published in the first place, since doing so suggests that his status as a prisoner outweighs the incredible harms done to survivors of child sexual abuse.
