I'm sure you are all as excited as I am.
You should be.
So here's a poem that came via e-mail yesterday. It's nice. Hope you like it.
Oh, and maybe I will start blogging something besides poetry again.
If I had a shining head
and people turned to stare at me
in the streetcars;
and I could stretch my body
through the bright water
and keep abreast of fish and water snakes;
if I could ruin my feathers
in flight before the sun;
do you think that I would remain in this room,
reciting poems to you,
and making outrageous dreams
with the smallest movements of your mouth?
