« Bad Poems [by Alan Michael Parker] | Main | Syntax, Sound, and Sensation: Terrance Hayes in Conversation with Alan Michael Parker »

September 28, 2016


This prediction assumes that either the Democrat (Clinton) or Republican (Trump) will win the election. While it is true that the chances of the third and fourth part candidates is pretty slim, I believe it would be bolder to predict which New Yorker will win the race rather than just to say that a New Yorker will win the race. Also, one of the two was born in Queens; the other lives in Westchester. How does this fact figure into your calculations?

What a bounty of David L., the Balanchine Quote Book and the satire of Nate Silver and the other data-driven pundits.
But, in response to Philip Regan, doesn't Trump have a golf course and a residence in Westchester? Kate Stimpson

It may be that Trump has holdings in Westchester as in Manhattan, although ownership itself should be distinguished from residence or nativity, and in the case of the putative Republican ownership itself is not an unambiguous distinction if it is a temporary condition and there is the possibility of default, i.e., bankruptcy, a tactic he has employed.

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
