« Letter from Berlin #4 (Suggested Listening) [by Rodney Wilhite] | Main | Not Night [poem by Patricia Carlin] »

December 01, 2017


This reminds me that many years ago when I was in college I came across an LP entitled "Tennessee Williams Reads Hart Crane." I wish I'd bought it. It's listed on Amazon as "unavailable," but a few libraries have it according to Google. It could be the next best thing to a recording of the poet himself, which as far as I know doesn't exist. TW obviously loved HC fiercely--he also took the title "Summer and Smoke" from Crane. Apparently he even asked to be buried at sea at the spot where Crane drowned, but that didn't happen.

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
