Sunday Morning Coming Down
Rain, by Jon Woodward (pictured here at an Alice James benefit from a couple years ago). The thumbnail description might place his work (moreso in this book than the also very good earlier collection, Mister Goodbye Easter Island) half way between (early) Robert Creeley, in his line and emotional stance, and Frank O'Hara, in his voice. The more I sit with this book, the more I'm enjoying it.
Beth Orton, Trailer Park. I still think this is her best CD.
Thought for the day:
The power of distraction, many thanks to C. Dale Young, and Jacob.
