Why is this man not the US Poet Laureate?

Going to Georgia
John Darnielle

The most remarkable thing about coming home to you
is the feeling of being in motion again
it's the most extraordinary thing in the world

I have two big hands and a heart pumping blood
and a 1967 Colt .45 with a busted safety catch
The world shines as I cross the Macon County Line
going to Georgia

The most remarkable thing about you standing in the doorway
is that it's you and that you're standing in the doorway
And you smile as you ease the gun from my hand
and I'm frozen with joy right where I stand

The world throws its light underneath your hair
forty miles from Atlanta, this is nowhere
going to Georgia

The world shines as I cross the Macon County Line
going to Georgia
