Hola mi Gente…
A friend just did a great thing for me — she bought me a bike as a belated birthday gift. Today I go to the store to pick it up! It’s hot and humid up here in the North and I hope to put in some beach time!
It’s Saturday and that means this blog is about art… This is one of mine.

Nows [no. 22]
Your cover is candor.
You wrap your secrets in cellophane,
and I follow these false tracks
of honesty with an invented innocence.
I’ve been collecting faulty clues
but I know the rules now.
I must discard your intimacies
and save instead your painful pauses,
those echoing silences that tell me
who you really are
by describing in desperate detail
who you are not.
