Thank you
For showing me
Your pet tarantula
In its glass case.
It was sublime.

    That’s pretty brilliant yourself there, Jason. Williams is one of my favorites, and Frost. (especially Birches) And all the modernists pretty much.

    Your poem is pretty objectivist, just in terms of mechanics. the two syllable / one syllable / three syllable thing….the word spring really does fucking spring out…I’m into it.

    I’m up in Binghamton. Where fore art thou a scholar to speak of it, eh? Still the paltz? WE gotta get together next time it’s possible.
