Rebecca, I so respect and APPRECIATE the willingness to risk being funny, that the fact so much of this is actually hilarious is an added bonus. Thanks!

Oh, thanks so much, Jim, for the exceedingly nice comment. I'm happy you found things to like!

I think we have the makings on this blog of a poets' tv network, what with the "24/7 New York School" channel announced last week and now this. I caught the first couple of episodes of Americas Next Top Poet (Ant-P) and believe it does deserve a place in the franchise. They need to show more of the actual writing of the poems - poets at work! And Paul Muldoon critiquing the work in progress a la Tim Gunn (Make it new!). How else are we viewers supposed to learn?

So wait, do you think my anais nin look isn't working? because the elizabeth barrett browning look is *so* hard to pull off.

I am now starting a band called Jorie Graham's Inner Thigh Tattoo.

Thanks for this great post! So funny! I've also wondered what would happen if Tyra went looking for poets instead of models... Love it.

"Anais Nin Andrews" would be a great character. Maybe a few others: Adrienne
Barbeau Rich? W. S. Merlot? The editor of POESY Magazine: Christian Woman?

Kenneth Joch?

Brilliant. -- DL

on when I
left the house

of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness

on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom

in the dark
