Thanks for re-posting the Gilbert-on-Ammons material. I must've missed them the first go-around. Any word on when Gilbert's biography of Ammons is going to be out? Just curious. Thanks.

John, Thanks for writing. These posts by Roger Gilbert are so terrific, they needed to be brought out from the archives. I don't know the status of the biography but I'm sure it will be worth the wait.

John, we are going to re-post this particular post to correct the technical glitches that are running the poetry and prose together in a heap. I am passing along your compliments to Roger Gilbert, who is working hard on the bio. A piece of his appears in a recent "Chicago Review" (Summer / Autumn 2012) devoted entirely to Archie. -- DL

Thanks David, and Stacey. I'll keep looking. The Chicago Review Ammons issue is full of good things. I made a few notes regarding it (and Ammons) here. And in a couple of subsequent posts. John

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

This Way Out

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