« Happy birthday, David Shapiro, author of "January" | Main | Karlheinz Stockhausen [by Lewis Saul] »

Charming, funny, Marixst in the Groucho sense, and New York all over even in a car's body.

Thank you for this lively comment, Molly Arden!

Bob Hicock is an important and undervalued poet.

My head IS full of all the bathrooms! And the fancier the place, the more interested I am in seeing the bathroom. The bathroom might be the only site of real connection or exchange in a place like a museum...our highest ideals meet our most basic needs. We come for the God, but we stay for the dog. I love this reading and this poem. What a perfect way to start the new year. Thank you for sharing your irresistible thoughts on this wonderful Hicok poem.

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
