THREE is the magic number


Three wheels on my wagon and I'm still rolling along.Ask not, comrades, what poetry can do for you but what you can do for poetry.

You've been watching "Sesame Street" again, haven't you?

I don't know if you know this, TFE, but I do already have a Plath poem, entitled, "I vs. Sylvia" and coincidentally, it does, in fact mention, "Lady Lazarus".
Despite this, I'm working on another more recent response to the piece just for YOU!

I see you are back in fine fettle and doing the ocuntdown for Monday - with illustrations - can't be bad.

Damn, I was wondering why the fuck Elvis Costello was suddenly competing with the Allman Brothers in my headphones... I like them both, but "Watching the Detectives" won out...

So, what can I do for poetry? I think I can string a word or two together, but poetry?

Advice/suggestions welcome...

[As if to mock my presence in Japan, the comment verification phrase is "lational." As if I'd ever be "illational"...]

'Long shadows by the jumping sign
invisible shivers running down my spine'
There's only one Elvis and he ain't dead yet!
Rick that's wood you have there, not just trees, stringing a word or two is poetry in a nutshell!
Get on the bus!
