« WORKING SPACE, post-script: CLOSER TO HOME [by Jennifer Clarvoe] | Main | "Song" [by Edwin Denby] »

December 14, 2020


If I were the "Don" of the book sector of the academic-military-industrial complex, I would call Prof. Ricks "a good earner." But, I'm not, I'm a poet and a big Bob Dylan fan.

With the exception of Tarantula, published against his wishes, Dylan doesn't publish whatever poems he writes; only songs. It is sad that his worst lyrics are better than so much poetry published today - so much of it dribbling out of the 800 poetry mills established at colleges in the USA, since Blood on the Tracks!

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

from New and Selected Poems by David Lehman
