A good writing weekend, this one. Worked on a couple of poems and a handful of PW reviews that are due. Finished reading one book, started another—IF ON A WINTER’S NIGHT A TRAVELER by Calvino. A quiet weekend as well. Yesterday Thai lunch and pool with friends. Was at the launch readings for Cate Marvin and Michael Dumanis’ new anthology LEGITIMATE DANGERS, which is a pretty comprehensive survey of a certain swatch or two of the poetic generation between roughly 30 and 45 years old. B. is still out of town—she was came home to teach then went away again until Tuesday—so I’m stuck in a kind of companionship limbo. Joined the National Book Critics Circle. Not sure yet what that will do for me—something, I think—but I like newsletters and membership cards. I keep thinking about the new Cat Power album, due out this Tuesday. I’ll be at Other Music during my lunch, I think, to pick up a vinyl copy to go with my vinyl copy of YOU’RE FREE. That’s all.
