« Happy new year, everyone! L'shanah Tovah! | Main | Haiku Heaven: an exchange [by David Lehman and David Shapiro] »

September 06, 2021


Right on, Alan. When my Europa travel-size alarm clock finally breathed its last, a victim of the pandemic years (!), Stacey bought me a replacement, so the Internet does have its uses. And let me second your statement on the value of a dial radio. I remember the pleasure of driving in upstate New York, fiddling with the dial, and listening to a jazz station from elsewhere or a Cincinnati Reds' game from the Queen City. One summer night in 1978, in Clinton, New York, I listened as the Montreal Expos lost to the Dodgers of Garvey, Cey, Russell and Lopes. "Et les Dodgers gagnent le jeu."

David: I once landed upon a Canadian football game announced in French. I knew it was football when I heard: "la longue passe!"

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
