really liked it
bookshelves: poetry

I liked the first section best; this is my introduction to her, and the longer, more fluid poem-sections drifted away from me sometimes. from "Captions for my Instruction Booklet on Naturally Historical Things" --
"All my good ideas, come
back to me! I've done $6.00 worth
of walking today and I want you
to come home."
and later, in another poem:
"The wind fingers everything the wind
can imagine, and there goes
the neighborhood"
