« 1 TV Haiku | Main | Reb Livingston Presents a Poem by Joanna Ruocco »

August 29, 2010


When I lived in the UK, the people were kind, intelligent, and charming, and the cityscape drab and ugly. I must have lived in the *other* UK. Now I live in a part of the US where the people are dull unless drunk or stoned, which is all the time, in which case they are unspeakably loud and vulgar. Interesting how that works.

Mr. Hummer, you lived in the same UK as I do now. There are certainly intelligent Englishman, like the eminent Henry James scholar mentioned in my first paragraph. James Byrne is English and kind and one of the most charming people I've ever met.

Surely, there is good company to be found in Arizona.

What a pity I miss seeing all those gorgeous knits! Thanks for sharing the photos.

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

"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
