I just wish Greg had exibited the same fortitude as Bob. Instead of refereing to a well-known poet, he could have used names there and in other places. Merwin, wasn't it??? Charles Plymell

Thanks for the comment, Pam. It is not Merwin; it is not Plymell. The reason I did not exhibit "the same fortitude as Bob" in posting the names of the poets he writes about is that the guidelines for guest bloggers here at the Best American Poetry site says, "no personal attacks." As both poets are still living, I thought the context was borderline. But I'll ask BestAmPo and amend if they give the go head. Best, Greg

Greg: I knew it wasn't Charles. He was using my link to make the comment and I asked him to sign his name. I see now that it wasn't clear. BTW, Bob is still live and kicking.
I certainly miss his accurate commentary on poetry. Ron is doing a good job but doesn't go for the jugular.

Radio

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

THE RULE OF THUMB
by T.P.Winch

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