Catching up with miscellaneous tasks. Mac1 in Covent Garden may be able to resurrect the old MacBook Pro for fair monies. Fingers crossed.

francine j. harris, "Between Old Trees"

there’s a rain formed. it has a face that reminds you

of hills. it has a country you could name if you were smarter.
it has a kind of mouth. it seems wrecked from all the commotion
of a windstorm. it has tear ducts, and what does that say about
you. it lives by the hope that someday again, there may
be bluing in a backyard wash, so far off
the sky. this is why children
chalk suns on the sidewalk. the wind brings north
through a hundred miles
of inanimate things.

when it hits, all the places you have been
seem too late to talk about. all is gray
that storms, and it crosses the country on busses,
looks for burned trash, hopes to see enough rivers,
hums something you can’t quite remember
but still you sleep. still, you wear no shoes
against the pavement and sometimes
the lightning, sometimes a wet rail
you lean over.

Would love to see more previews of poems on publishers’ websites. Reading a striking description for a collection just isn’t enough.

The adults who (conquered their fears) and performed deserve applause. The others were equally as capable, but didn’t quite get there.

The kids of today are the adults of tomorrow. Spent the day working a corporate poetry workshop. Amazing how resistant adults can be.
