There, there, nice CocoRosie, nice The Adventures of Ghostface and Stillborn.

I have really enjoyed their previous works. Just beautiful, just, just beautiful. I just wonder when my opera training's going to pay off.

Lucha Libre

Saturday night was great. I crossed the border with some friends, a luchador, and an ice chest.

On Sunday, I posted Jack H's new book. Here's another one I've enjoyed from Manic D press. I worked for Eli Coppola a few years ago at the San Francisco State Poetry Center just before her passing. She was nice, intelligent, and she let me spend my time reading through the Poetry Center's library when I should have been working toward my intern hours. She knew I had a lot to learn--and what better place to learn than in a library.
I have a poem in the new Seattle Review. Check it out.

Here's the new book by my wife's new bud Jack H. In it is a poem called "Little Kaddish" that's wonderful. Also, his "The Day Bobby Kaufman Died" makes me say yeah. Bomkauf who said stuff like "Don't laugh at my ignorance, I may be a great bullfighter, ole!"

Neruda news. I wonder that look.

Back from San Francisco! What a trip. Wife and I spotted Jack Hirschman (a true hero of mine (and now hers)) at Caffe Trieste, then wife saw him later in the day in City Lights lower level while I upstairs and gawky-eyed. She took a picture with him and he farewelled "Take care, young lady." By the time i got down there with his new book in hand and ready with my pen, he had already left the building.

Anyhow, beautiful weather and wonderful wine.


Here's a poem (scroll down) called "Amen." by Venus Jones. I think it's perfect for these times of ours. Awoman
