« Two Dozen Reasons to Make Dinner [by Adrienne Su] | Main | Kent Johnson on Ashbery, BAP, and Poetry Re-education Camps »

August 28, 2020


Terrific, Mitch. My favorite is "The Door is Always Open," though it is hard to beat the last line of "The Packard Eucalyptus" (or the poem's first word, for that matter). "Norby" is, among other things, a play on the triolet as a verse form. Anyway. . .bravo.

I love the voice of the speaker. I get an entire presence, physique, wardrobe, tone of voice---maybe even a little bit of a hitch in his gait.

These are wonderful poems, guess i will be looking into another poet totally new to me...ioanna carlsen, great omen for a new year
