I prefer “The Tyranny of the Poem,”’ which grows in strength and darkens
toward the end.

Impossible to choose. I like them both!

having published 21 books (self) proves to me the tyranny of the poem and the tryanny of editing said poem

too much sing-song in the first one, too much familiar terrain in the second, but outside of that, the first is more interesting

The first one.

Personally, I prefer the second one, but I can see that the first has more potential.

I like all these comments and agree with just about all of them. -- DL

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
