« Give Me Back My Bloomers! (Catullus 420) [translated by Molly Arden] | Main | On Fats Waller's Birthday: A Poem [by David Lehman] »

May 21, 2020


Oh Dean, this old lady would love to give you a big hug! We so appreciate your sharing this with us! Memories oh such wonderful memories. Our love, Carolyn

Hey Dean,

Nice "memory mining" work. Your Mom was clearly an iconic individual. She would've been welcome at our poetry crew get together this afternoon. Roald, Roger & I had a fascinating session on the patio of the C-Tn Bagel Shop. David LehmaN sent a poem re: being obliged to maintain self-separation at home, though, on occasion, he does get out to walk his dog in a nearby park w/waterfalls. In any case, after today's session, Roald & I talked re: the prospects of asking you what U think about the idea of Duke Press & Cornell Press teaming up to publish a volume of stories, poems & such. So, what do you think.

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
