I have so many little click-points
with Terrance there...Molly Bloom,
monkee zen, the dog, daring to
suggest philosophical machines
in words... He loves the mud
between the toes and the stars
between the ears. Would be a very
inspiring for a
"what is poetry / why is poetry"
Almost went to CMU. Fascinating
confluence of arts and sciences
there. I went to orientation.
They were to house freshmen in
frats. Orientation was in a frat.
Nope. Just bad timing...
Some fascinating people develop
at CMU. Like Terrance!
