Loved the poem and the incisive exegesis! Thank you, Angela Ball.

Fascinating and compelling -- both the poem and the commentary. Thank you.

Rick Stull has always written like an angel. When I first met him, he was nineteen, and I thought he WAS an angel. Good job, Rick, as usual. Merrill Gilfillan would be proud! (private joke). Thanks, Angela, for bringing Rick's work to BAP, and for your insights into the poem.

Somewhere between Sodus and Gomorrah(NYC), Rick Stull has been writing lyric poems for decades in the best true Ashberyan spirit. Angela Ball's fine exigesis complements the evocations of RS well.
What a welcome surprise to see Richard Stull represented here, as well.

left the house
