« Marilyn Monroe as Chanteuse [by David Lehman] | Main | An Interview with Charlottes Matthews on Poetry, Cancer, and (by Nin Andrews) »

June 03, 2018


honored to be included among those worthy of your attention, David,
even if that means being now forever connected to the nefarious Michael "J."...
(in a few very early poems published in little mags in the first years of the 1960s
I used my official middle initial "D." for, (drum roll followed by rim shot) "David")...

I might have guessed you'd have the most beautiful middle name in the language, Mikey David. Cheers! -- 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
