Hey Jericho--

This is Richard Marx Weinraub; we briefly talked after your NYU reading. A few days later I went to your Rutgers/Newark reading. I was really wowed! Not only was your poetry about your family and psychology terrific, I also loved the way you let the MFA students strut their stuff in a very supportive atmosphere. Hoots and all--exactly what academia needs! Please keep in touch.

Welcome aboard, Jericho. DL

Thanks so much for the welcome aboard, Stacey! Richard, I was so happy to see you in both audiences. More than anything while reading, a poet like me needs to know someone is somehow reacting. I really appreciate that. My email is Thanks for sending yours.


Also wanted to say I've gotten a lot of mileage out of the chamillionaire anecdote, Jericho. -- DL

Thanks so much, Jericho

I'm a fool for anybody with gold or platinum teeth.

Thanks for the share Jericho. :D

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson

on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

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