which means that from about 5p today until midnight (?) my website
will be unavailable... which means that email to me won't go through...
but posting to the message boards may continue if you don't rely
on the links to them via my site... bookmark readings
and a plain
no man is an island... unless he's made
it out of others...and they're all there together getting... deranged...
disarranged... the better to see you... my dear... i mean that's
what this retreat always does to my sight... almost always...
and this time, yes... so putting one's head back into the regular
frame and smiling pleasantly for the camera turns problematic...
as the face you make just when you wake up and find yrself in
a suddenly and unexpected public condition...having to be yrself
the one they all have known and loved... and generally taken for
granted as we all should be... but there was this other place...
you were just a little different... and still yrself other than
who is normally you... so you think one more nap might do it...
so long, banned
... see you next year...

happy birthday to wallace stevens...
helen vendler... & others... On
"Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird"The blackbird is the only element in nature which

tonio takes some time to think about what poetry
does... and what my poetry does... to him... this kind of reflection
is valuable to me... and it's got me wondering if the best "criticism"
doesn't often approach the condition of prose poetry... as this
does... or maybe it's just good writing... metaphorical thinking...
in any case, thanks very much...
aw shucks, mam... Amy
says some really really nice things about me... and, in truth,
i am a bit older than she is...
