Reading Wayne Miller's ONLY THE SENSES SLEEP, just out from New Issues. Or I guess the technical pub date is 10/1, but you can get it already. Highly recommended.

Also reading Alice Notley's new book ALMA, OR THE DEAD WOMEN. It's a bit of an uphill climb, but full of gems. Sort of a deeply obscured novel in prose poems and verse, or the other way around. The cover is utterly beguiling.

Now I'm off to see Alex Lemon read with B at the Burning chair in Brooklyn. I guess the L trains out, but you should come anyway.

Hi, just thought you might like to know that I posted up some "notes towards an essay" on Allan Peterson all the lavish in common over on http://sweeneypoetry.blogspot.com , about another four posts to go, and then I will wrap it up. Congrats on all your acceptances for your poems by the way....

What cha reading now. It's 3 weeks later. I completely fell for Best of My Love, which I returned to after you posted about it and Kate did her interview of Aaron Keily.
