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...

His cunning speech appeals at once to his listeners' fears, aroused by the ghastly spectacle of violence, and to their greed. To every Roman citizen he gives 75 drachmas. The handout, absurd at such a moment of public crisis, is magically effective. The mob erupts and, as Antony had calculated, Rome is plunged into a cycle of violence that he can exploit for his own political ends.

happy birthday to wallace stevens...

at A Glinting Web 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...
