Richard Brautigan

Richard BrautiganThere was a year in the distant past, 1969 or 1970, when everyone looked like Richard Brautigan.  I would buy American cheese for my sandwich and Richard Brautigan would hand back 13 cents in change.  What was that all about anyway?  Did he get tired being so many people?

I will play my tribute to Richard Brautigan on the next episode of Irving Toast, Poetry Ghost.  We will hear the man read his work.  We will hear a band called Groove Machine perform a song titled "Richard Brautigan."  That's it, but it's plenty.  In the coming weeks you will hear The Round Top Saga.  But that's another story all together.  Or a series of stories.  Or poems.  Or events.  Or whatever.  I leave you with a lengthy biography of Richard Brautigan provided by the fine folks at Poetry Magazine.  Soup's on!

accident, disruption, and collage

This one’s on me; I forgive you; all of yours; and I could, friends, be an airmail envelope smeared with white paste, moderate success, and a small wooden box, down the front (eating, full of nickels) of my shirt and be who?  A failure, a tall chair screamed at by Mrs. Lincoln?  Just as an athlete with a blue stripe doesn’t know me, just as a healthy human and skinny brown legs anyway, just as a trumpet player with brass feet, they think I am a teacher, aerosol disinfectant, and have power as an elephant mime over a ream of white bond.  But in this empty cassette box, they don’t know it is just a small, two-pressed maple leaf that is power.  List all of my accomplishments, saved as souvenirs, and yet the in-tray equals the out.  And even though I am not proud, the fan hangs its head.  I don’t recommend self-flagellation in shame or know how to spell.  Nor do I recommend a cord wrapped, listen, to find a way around its or my neck.  Dichotomy?  Why?  To be at peace, if I were a tricycle, don’t they with the swamp monster at least just whack what crawls from my chest?  I feel I could stick and try not to scream, start over my face to cut.  I have many, many faults.  With a clean slate, a map is granted of kindergarten, all over again

Robert Dana

Robert DanaRobert Dana
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Robert Dana (June 2, 1929 – February 6, 2010) was an award-winning American poet, who taught writing and English literature at Cornell College and many other schools, revived The North American Review and served as its editor during the years 1964–1968, and was the poet laureate for the State of Iowa from 2004 to 2008.

Robert Patrick Dana was born in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1929. At the age of seven he became an orphan, and was uprooted and moved to the western part of the state where he was raised as a foster child in the home of James Francis ("Pop") Kearney in Haydenville, Massachusetts.[1]
