« Fred & Ginger at the Film Forum, August 24 | Main | Consider the Lobster and the Marinating Cat [by Eleanor Goodman] »

August 20, 2010


I read Towle's account yesterday and completely lost what little curiosity I had about Johnson's book. I also never would suspect Koch of anything like that.

I think Stacey wrote this post.

I will have a detailed response to Tony Towle's post on Monday, at John Latta's Isola di Rifiuti blog.


Thank you, Kent. We'll post a link to your response when it goes up.

That's very kind of you, David, thank you.


Jennifer, you're close. I wrote the poem.

Who wrote Frank O'Hara's poems? Isn't it obvious that it was Shakespeare? Ahh, but who was Shakespeare, there's the rub...

That's all very curious. Because Frank O'Hara writes some of my poems. I have never quite understood how he manages it, but it's quite definitely happening.

Kenneth wrote some of my poems. But that's a secret.

Who cares? Shakespeare was a lousy, marginal poet at best.

OK OK, I have to come clean. I'm Shakespeare.
