i'm doing it. i thought i might not but it seems i am. i started with richard brautigan because i thought it would be a nice way into everything. this is what he looks like now
he says, "he had appeared as a specter and disappeared as a specter. there was nothing of us in his coming and going. he was just another specter, chained to a log, fleeing alligators at big sur."

here is what will follow rb
before i started reading for comps, i took the weekend to read non-comps items, such as:

with deer

and boris by the sea (again)

and black life

and i tried to get through forever valley but i ran out of time

and the pacific review which has turned itself into ghost town

and the new thermos

and i went for a walk
