Soundtrack: John Coltrane: Live at Birdland

It's sad, really. I come home every day all excited, hopeful, about the mail, anticipating news from poetry city. No news of late.

On another front, the poems are coming, and I'm reading with deep and ernest engagement--this Graham Greene novel is softly blowing my mind. And Mary Szybist's tightly coiled poems, too.

What's anyone out there reading these days?

I'm reading "A Dry White Season" by Andre Brink. He's another quietly amazing novelist.

The news never comes when you want it to. And it seems acceptances only come all at once. Then silence.

Reading Rhodes' biography of Audubon and Oppen.

The Dylan memoir.
