« March Madness by Catherine Woodard | Main | You'd Be Surprised at Madeline! (by Laura Orem) »

March 12, 2012


I love this entry. Thank you! I esp. love the last paragraph:

" I am sure that in my body, in my mouth, that translates to wrapping around every syllable and granting every vowel shape and consonant a moment of glory. And it feels good and fun and very far from boring. Like a lover."

Ditto Nin. "I have a beautiful painter-friend who preaches the gospel of cross-discipline creativity, and I desperately need an altered view." Yes yes.

I know that ennui - it's spring break, and I should be writing some poems. Instead...

But now I'm going to listen to "Carmen." That'll perk me right up!

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
