Play fair, and wear sunscreen! And read poetry books kids! Eyewear needs a summer break. Call it gone fishin'. Or less confusion. Unless North Korea actually drops its nukes, or Don Paterson declares that Chuck Bernstein is his favourite poet, I will be unlikely to post much here for a while. Don't panic. There are enough featured poets, reviews, and other stuff here to browse - Eyewear has a long tail wagging back five years. And, oh, yeah, Inception is growing on me. And, is Pulled Apart By Horses a sort of dumb Pixies rip-off, or something altogether better and more complex? My last weighing in for a while on controversies of the day: editors and the Queen shouldn't go back on their invites and their acceptances - but nobles oblige. Where was Walcott on the Forward list? White Egrets is a great book. Maybe it will fare better at the Eliots. Have a good summer time!
