I seem to be on a Walt Whitman kick these days.
It’s feast or famine with me—and today was a feast! I received proofs of Underlife! It’s so pretty! Can’t tell you how good it feels to hold these poems in my hands.
Also, I received a proof for a poem I have in an upcoming issue of The MOM Egg, and copies of CKP Newsletter arrived. This issue features a conversation with Joseph Legaspi and me talking about our books. When its posted on the CKP Web site, I’ll let you know. Lastly, I confirmed that I will be reading with Afaa Michael Weaver on February 25 at Salem State College.
Today was a good day.
Recently, I watched Dead Poets Society on a movie channel. Did you know that the film is 20 years old? I wonder writers view the movie as cheesy or as a sentimental favorite. In any case, here’s one of my favorite scenes, featuring Ethan Hawke and Robin Williams. Enjoy.
