« Mary Jo Bang and David Lehman Read Their Poems at DIA | Main | 10/22/2019 (by Mitch Sisskind) »

October 22, 2019


Hi Stacey, your article reminded me of my Grad school weekend job when I worked at the 42nd St. Library (thanks to Ed Bryne). My dad used to fix me an "appetizing" sandwich of lox, white fish and onion on an onion disc with olives on the side, and the Book Review section to take with me. "If I don't think of suicide at least once a year, I get suicidal," was a quote from I.B. Singer (who my father used to read in The Forward) that has stayed with me from those 45 years ago. David also recommended Reader's Block to me---but that was years later. Take care. Regards, Michael

Noted with considerable pleasure.

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
