Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Dust storm [by Tom Healy]:


About a month ago I was looking at Dust Bowl era photos. I kept imagining a cross between a dust storm and a tornado.

The Pope of the Coptics is still alive. He's been Pope since 1971! I first saw him on a documentary about the Gnostics. This was also the first time I heard of Coptics. There's a Coptic in Astoria, Queens. I had to go inside and find a reference to Pope Shenouda III somewhere inside. I found it.

Yeats seems to have turned into an Albino in old age. I wonder if this is the reason for his obsession with gyres. If you stretch the photo width-wise you can make him look like he's obsessed with gyros.

"The Angry Earth" is clearly Charles Olson.

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.
