Home from London, visit with old Rutgers buddy Deborah Harper. Lou and I danced and dined under the stars on a riverboat cruising the Thames. Butterfly exhibit at the Science Museum, Lou posed with stone monkeys and Darwin and danced Old English with seniors at the folk center. Warm beer, duck breast in cherry sauce, high tea at Brown's.
Now I'm off to the Virginia Center to start a new book of poems (PACKING LIGHT wraps up 40 years of work on the lyric). Aim to get down a version of the next children's book, GAGE THE GREYHOUND WHO SAID NO. Under contract for translations of Surrealist poet Benjamin Peret, forthcoming from Black Widow Press.
Chances are, I'll start new poems and forget the master plan! School looms. Circe avoids.
Pocketbooks are bigger in London--huge. Good leather everywhere. 7/10/08
