I have spent far too much time away from Wallace Stevens. Where has he been all of these years, aside from his influence, which seems to pervade at least half of the poetry I enjoy reading, if not all of it?
We're on Harmonium for my MFA class, and I have the strangest sense of deja vu, as if I'm back in grad school studying for my comps again, and about to hop on the #8 bus and ride home and sunbathe on the roof.
I feel a lot healthier today, after almost two weeks of being sick. I'd rather be sick now than at AWP, however. Apparently AWP is right around the corner. You should definitely put this on your agenda, if you'll be there.
