Don - thanks for this shout-out to D.S. He's a wonderful poet, underread these days, his work too often overshadowed by the sad drama of his life. This poem is lovely. I love "The Heavy Bear Who Goes With Me," too.

Dear Don,

I too have a mystical bond with DS--I memorized his poems, loved particularly
the lines: It is l937 now/Many great dear are taken away..."" and the Gluck poem and the play and the first story." Dupee amazingly said I reminded him most of Delmore, haha! Koch told many jokes about
his class. (KK influenced by Delmore)
Please send me an email for you so I can send you a bad poem, and a home address for bad collages.At least I published one poem in the Partisan and my uncle left me old
copies. Kitaj loved the covers so he made them into works of art by leaving them alone.KK said he said Who here thinks they';re going to be great poets. Everyone said yes., Now put dopwn your handsa sd DS
three great poets make a Renaissance. And I
have a friend who married Lou Reed, who told me Nico was really scary and had asked
him Are you scared of me, Lou?

thank.this site is best

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
