Elegy for My Notebook
I've just filled up another little notebook
I prefer the MEAD 3 X 5 hard plastic notebooks. They fit in pockets, pouches, nearly everywhere, and the hard plastic cover keeps them from falling apart.
Today, my sea-blue one is retired.
Tomorrow, I think I have a sunset-gray/purple one starting.
The last thing I was working on was an attempt to think about John Ashbery's poetry in some way that isn't reductive. The last thing written on the last page is:
"It's the genius of unendingness."
Ah, lovely irony.
Anyway, what are your composition habits? Do you fill up little notebooks as well? Tell me I'm not alone.
