« "Shaking Martinis" [from John O'Hara's "Butterfield 8"] | Main | Deems Taylor introduces Frank Sinatra on V-Disc "for the men overseas" (1944) »

This woman pushes back with spicy imagery. Courage is always appreciated in my lexicon.

Brave poetry, snarling back at that so dead Werewolf Lon Chaney Jr. in Trader Vick's with his damnably perfect hair.

as ted berrigan said, riffing on doc Williams ('no idea but in things') : 'no idea but in juxtapositions'



I often wonder how much I should withhold in my/ writing. Or should I confess

Perfect blending of disclosure and pulling back....

But did Courbet or Wittgenstein read Moby Dick? So much to wonder about in this poem.

I am become a Fan!

I love this!

Beautiful! poem and picture.

“where there

is a wound, there is a subject.”

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
