Readings: A Nice Excerpt

X
This is the final stanza of a Charles Simic poem entitled "Solving the Riddle" from the book Return to a Place Lit By a Glass of Milk. I like it:

Inside my empty bottle
I was constructing a lighthouse
While all the others
Were making ships.

I like it a lot.

So, what have you been up to, these long months?
Facebook has kind of destroyed the world of blogs, I think...

IEP? Where did that come from? AIP are the initials in question. Hm. Losing it...

Hello again Rob...yes, I have noticed how some blogs have become shadows of their former selves, including some of our old haunts...

Yes. More's the pity!
