« Sestina Featuring Six Words Commonly Used On This Blog (by Rachel Barenblat) | Main | John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester 1647-1680 »

June 06, 2008


Back in the days of Miss Rheingold, my cousin Samantha Adler interrupted a promising figure-skating career to take a job as the weathergirl on channel five in New York City. She laughed when I asked her about it and I believe the job had very little to do with her actually formidable intellect. She left after a year, went to Paris to paint, and married a Frenchman. End of story, except that I know she retains affection for the weather in April in Paris and Autumn in New York.

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

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