I Like Denver
Today I went for a hike in the mountains with an awesome friend & my dog. I bought freshly made soymilk from an Asian market & then went to a reading featuring Bin Ramke & Dan Beachy Quick.
I feel pretty good about Denver, even though I was kind of sundazed & ineloquent upon meeting Dan. When he told me that he & his wife had a 13 day old baby I meant to ask "And your wife is healthy?" but instead asked "And your wife is pregnant?"
Here's a damn good Bin Ramke poem with a bit of language confusion for you:
Cajun, a Corruption of "Arcadian," or of a Mi'Kmawi'Simk Term for "Fullness"
I am often confused by the words "equal" and "between." To say one thing is another thing is like saying... one thing. And what separates them. There were several major storms in my past, and then there were two, separately named, which killed three-fourths of the trees of New Orleans. The trees of the Gulf Coast will continue decaying into the atmosphere, little particles of tree dancing into the air, carbon mainly, and even my mother's body will be little particles in the earth and then air and there will be rains thus into earth again. The French who made a life with the help of the Mi'kmaq were dispersed into the colonies. Ethnic cleansing. Clean air. Clean water. Clean land.
