« Born in the Belly of the Belmont Hotel [by Mitch Sisskind] | Main | Last Love [by Nikolay Zabolotsky, trans. Boris Dralyuk] »

May 05, 2023


Darragh took this sketch facing west from the roof of Frank's and my building, London Terrace, at 470 West 24th Street. The dark building upper right is the Starrett-Lehigh. The elevated tracks of the old New York Central, now the High Line, are out of sight in the near foreground, blocked from view by the parapet (here inscribed FIRST ISSUE) on our roof.

Lovely classic work.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness

"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
