Re: God is hiding in the closet

Cate, I always love reading your stuff. I remember when I read the Bible that my impression of God was that he was an omnipotent toddler. I, of course, was annoyed, but you've taken the childish God and made him a jokester. I love that God is a terrible hider - always gives himself away. I think it'...

Re: if i knew your name

I haven't read a poem like this in a long time. It seems entirely emotional. I sense loss, but there's not much to hold on to. Please check it over for typos. I'm not sure if you mean depend or deepened, your or you're, did spring spell or spill, ray's or rays, etc, etc. I like the failed / veiled s...

Four Poems for Valentine's Day, 2 1/2 by me.

I send my husband poems for Valentines Day. Sometimes I write them, sometimes I use others' works that appeal to me, sometimes I start with a poem by someone else I like and edit it to my own purposes. Semi-plagiarized. Here are the poems I'm sending this year: Einstein’s Happiest Moment by Richard ...

Banjo

Banjo

The banjo is a sound so sweet,
a bucket full of lemon drops.
Your leg bounces bumpaditty
& old patina kicks up dust
for centuries and centuries to come.
Just a little grey-haired dancing girl
and a hog-eyed man
with a banjo on his belly.

Ceremony

My mug is large and heavy and has yellow and blue flowers on it. It is a vessel of yesterday's dried remnants which I take to the kitchen. A contained version of morning happens in the microwave, the light, the heat, the chirp. Keegan's French press has wet grounds in the bottom. He doesn't mind tha...

Every time I see someone write "to overwhelming" i imagine that person with drawn sword marching through a meadow in search of overwhelming.

Re: Millye and the bats

I'm sorry you have only one degree in creative writing. I have about 69 degrees in Fahrenheit, and about 22 in Celsius. Cate does not have a degree in Genetic Engineering. Cate has a degree in Johnny cake, Molasses and Sassafras Tea from Cornell. And the Fisheye one has several degrees of freedom, t...
