"Joanna Newsom is an attractive young lady, and also a talented harpist."
here's to a merry birthday, for mike, an oldie from february 2008:
punctuate yr health!
papercuts, heartspark fire!
two, in fact! the first (february or the next hr.
its all here in the interview
rather on a
wed. night respite; all this catharsis!
& ruckus, aplomb
well-honed their defining still life
drowsing the pacific northwest (3rd ave.)
in addition, hemlock & kcbs--
warped for yr pleasure!
old italian ceiling w/ port authority
i’m a ppl. person! headline & masthead
for mike gillaspy
& skulking into spring break, here's two new pomes:
ambitious as an advance
somewhat campy, et al.
(susan sontag for the shambolic sunday)
quirky, certainly -- fog in the bloodstream
the pink poignancy of flamingoes
"that's not writing; it's typing"
the whimsical dangerous
the elegant pilfering of sincerity
* * *
the terrible accuracy of reminiscence (feedback nostalgia)
b-flat clarinet woods
a radio flyer around a tree, hemorrhaging
of foghorns, & such is the gesture
of office equiptment, swift—
a nervous breakdown
w/ a smile:
it really must be up to attraction, afterall...
old books, philosophies
the scissors more than
& the answered prayers, para
shd really graph this abruptly
son-of-a-bitch, w/ flags & pretty flowers—
i find it almost facetious
collapse, the pome's glaringly incurious
characters & storyline
it isn't a sheer accident he went to the shapes
& waded into the woodwork

oh, happy antiquing! godspeed through the thrush. gramercy, & thx. for reading.
