« I have a new blog called "Poetic Atheism" [by Jennifer Michael Hecht] | Main | Neil de la Flor, Guest blogger July 10-16 »

July 10, 2011


Sally, this blog is like the beautiful azulejos, where sections of it are bound and framed by the strips...the short, crisp, and succinct lines of Elizabeth Bishop's poem, making the whole blog and the encapsulated experience memorable, and hard NOT to matter.

I'll be looking forward to your poems inspired by this wonderful trip to Portugal and Spain. Welcome home!

At the Massachusetts Commission for the Blind, we also promote the following ‘Top 10’ list of things motorists should not do when seeing a pedestrian using a white cane or guide dog at street crossings.

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
