Seek Giacometti’s “The Palace at 4 a.m.” Go back two hours. See towers and curtain walls of matchsticks, marble, marbles, light, cloud at stasis. Walk in.

More on "Elegies for the Water"
Elegies for the Water (here) sold more than a thousand copies in its first month. That's doing wonderfully well for a book of poems. Confetti, Phil! Next up: pieces on the poems of Rosanne Coggeshall, on Howard Bahr, and on writing advice.
Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.

That must be some kind of record for the US!ReplyDelete
It is very, very good for a book of poems, 2009 A. D.!ReplyDelete
And I should say that I'll probably be delayed on the next few posts due to travels through the thorny parts of life. It's not like a book; we don't get to skim.
I love your incrdible and totally individual " Use Of Language" ( as "They" say in schools...)
Who else says something like your final lines in this post...! Marvellous.

I wasn't ignoring you--just away to south Georgia. I might've been fibbing in this little note. Might post some pictures of my maternal family home next.
