love the human form divine

Sarah and I were with all the kids the other afternoon chomping on Ben and Jerry's across from Vanderbilt. Peter and Sam were jumping up and down and waving at people as they boarded a parking lot escalator made visible through a window (across the street from what was once Guido' an oyster bar).
One big friendly old guy walked by us twice and smiled at the kids. The third time he went ahead and told us the boys were beautiful (in a completely friendly, smiling, in-no-way-weird kind of way) and he marveled at the bright blueness of Peter Berrigan's eyes. As he walked away he shouted, "Those eyes could make the sky jealous!"
Sarah beamed over that one. I told a few of my classes about it (file under "Everyday is poetry"). Sarah just told me we should throw it down on the blog.
She sits a few feet away in a green chair in the final stretch of Middlemarch. I type and listen to the air conditioner.
Thanks for listening, Gentle Reader.

Not One...But THREE

Discerning viewers will notice not one...but THREE brand spanking new articles you ain't never seen before (if'n I haven't vainly foisted a link upon thee already). They're over yonder in the RECENT BROADSIDES section. Give 'em a looksee if you're so inclined. Maybe a morsel of feedback or a miffed-off request for clarification will get us all talking and geeked.
The first one features my doctored image in a haze of importantness. Sarah says my hair looks all poofey. Perhaps she's right.
