Rebecca, I so respect and APPRECIATE the willingness to risk being funny, that the fact so much of this is actually hilarious is an added bonus. Thanks!

Oh, thanks so much, Jim, for the exceedingly nice comment. I'm happy you found things to like!

I think we have the makings on this blog of a poets' tv network, what with the "24/7 New York School" channel announced last week and now this. I caught the first couple of episodes of Americas Next Top Poet (Ant-P) and believe it does deserve a place in the franchise. They need to show more of the actual writing of the poems - poets at work! And Paul Muldoon critiquing the work in progress a la Tim Gunn (Make it new!). How else are we viewers supposed to learn?

So wait, do you think my anais nin look isn't working? because the elizabeth barrett browning look is *so* hard to pull off.

I am now starting a band called Jorie Graham's Inner Thigh Tattoo.

Thanks for this great post! So funny! I've also wondered what would happen if Tyra went looking for poets instead of models... Love it.

"Anais Nin Andrews" would be a great character. Maybe a few others: Adrienne
Barbeau Rich? W. S. Merlot? The editor of POESY Magazine: Christian Woman?

Kenneth Joch?

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.
