I read Towle's account yesterday and completely lost what little curiosity I had about Johnson's book. I also never would suspect Koch of anything like that.

I think Stacey wrote this post.

I will have a detailed response to Tony Towle's post on Monday, at John Latta's Isola di Rifiuti blog.


Thank you, Kent. We'll post a link to your response when it goes up.

That's very kind of you, David, thank you.


Jennifer, you're close. I wrote the poem.

Who wrote Frank O'Hara's poems? Isn't it obvious that it was Shakespeare? Ahh, but who was Shakespeare, there's the rub...

That's all very curious. Because Frank O'Hara writes some of my poems. I have never quite understood how he manages it, but it's quite definitely happening.

Kenneth wrote some of my poems. But that's a secret.

Who cares? Shakespeare was a lousy, marginal poet at best.

OK OK, I have to come clean. I'm Shakespeare.

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.
