30. Year-End: There’ll be no snow this year.
29. Getting Home: spaghetti, that old bastard

26. Ghazal of the Honed Knife: Left hand the usher, right hand the groom of her.
25. Bitterness: Now I don’t feel one way or the other.
24. What Does it for Me: Emil Nolde
23. His Distance: I rub up against it.
22. Vidalia: Such food won’t do for cooking.
21. Poetry Overdose: One more invocation of the name Sylvia and I’ll kill myself.
20. Quaker Meeting: God will kiss the back of your head.

17. Who’s Who: Sarah, you never climbed that mountain.
16. Consultation: Gregor, I bring you again my lurid heft.
15. Getting There: At last I have given up thinking

11. To a Young Man Listening to Techno on his Walkman: Jolt us from the hypnotist of modern pomp
10. Remedy: Brown sugar sucks the fire-bite out
9. Friday Morning: the dull ache, incapable of opening its mouth
8. NJ Transit: You never see a soul out here
7. Dwindling Commodities: It’s not the dearth which makes me bitter
6. Destiny: A man cheats because it is the first day in February.
5. Drawing Exercise: To be truly sad you have to know the right people
4. Distances: Do you imagine misery as vigourous
3. Powerhouse: so much for showbusiness
2. The Suited Accepts: Today I say yes to the mice inside me
1. Brocade Patching: Rain rubs the spoons

Dear Sarah,

Why must you torture yourself this way?

30 rough drafts shared with the world over 30 consecutive days?

The horror.
