« WHAT CAN POETRY DO? Part 2 [Kelle Groom] | Main | DRIVE: Car Poems [Kelle Groom] »

August 28, 2014


Hi Kelle,

I've enjoyed every one of your beautiful blog entries this week and was especially grateful for your interview with Brian Turner, which, like the best literary interviews, allows him to reveal elements of his process and intentions that are hidden from the work itself. I teach his work-- and yours-- here in CT. The interview, and your magnificent essay about your residency at the James Merrill House, will be part of my curriculum. Thank you for giving them to us. You're missed here.

(Sending the link to my students now)

Kelle... amazing, right? Are you there through september? I'm reading on the 21st. Beautifully written post.

Thank you, Kelle, for this lovely and evocative post. We're so looking forward to January!

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.
