spine poem #11

come dance with me
under the volcano
through the eye
of a needle beyond
the aspen grove

spine poem


spine poem #10

born standing up
waking up american
growing up absurd
loitering at the mountains
of madness teaching
a stone to talk
coming home
crazy

spine poem


“Says I to myself” should be the motto of my journal. It is fatal to the writer to be too much possessed by his thought. Things must lie a little remote to be described.

—Thoreau, Journal, 11 Nov 1851

Happy 205th, Henry.
