Rome, Italy Plus Birthday Wishes To Tom Lee Wu!

Thomas The Tank Engine

Sweetened wood with eyes
widening the grain
above my imaginative pen.
I value this unconscious connection-
The call makes my whole afternoon fulfilling,
Bach music in the air, amuzing.
Surge and ebb of cars and trucks
waft over twelve stories of rain,
on my desk, complete palettes of notebooks
offer up their moonlit pages.

Enjoy A Quiet But Awesome Birthday, Dear Tom! U R Cool!

Righter Selden

Of what use is it to be on the point
of coming to great wisdom through suttering,
And then to dull your vision,
and lose the wisdom
by easing your suffering
through some anaestintic,
whether it be alcohol, or Christian Science?
You who do this sell all that you have,
And then fail to buy the pearl.
You who do this have left the cave of ignorance
and the haunts of bats and sightless fish,
Only to bandage your eyes
Against the light of heaven,
and the one great star in the East!

The Fat Woman

She engages herself
in exclusive self-denials.
Everything changes.
she hones herself to
the stars, unconscious,
she is the full moon.
