I'm sending the Aniston breakup
clip to my wife looked
around at the empty house
let's open up something better
in its place everything is
ending here I think you
might have just written a
Billy Joel song for me
it's my worst nightmare yeesh
that's awful nice thanks bro
I knew you were cool
when I started following you
what happened to the good
old days of Spring Break
being easy to plan why
am I drunk oh yeah
I forgot how much I
love the National I miss
the balcony scenes most every
time I see this photo
of you I think of
Zorro memorizing laws is fun
you're only a little Italian
though I don't even know
that I know your real
name didn't you try to
give that away before where
do you hang your hat
goldfish crackers are way too
good maybe a pretty cocky
princess would save me though
my life seems too boring
to bother twittering oh cock

Tuesday, a slightly better day than Monday
The new Red Ring of Death
Lies damn lies Richard Nixon lies and statistics
Anybody want to lead some floats this morning?
I'm already on the way to the Berne office
Will be glad when I get home
Why can not kids get along 2 at a time but better 3 at a time
Yeah, I figured. I was a few minutes too late
I'm in the market for some cycling clothes,
Where should I go in Chicago?
I want to make a movie with Cillian Murphy
Gotta be good with the small things I have now
Before God trusts me with more
Ideas and beliefs are never unifying
Still getting unsolicited calls from Warranty Services
My future's so bright!
Yay! Be right there!
I was distracted with camera talk
Anyone know how to fix a dishwasher?
I heard that you were there. How did it go?
Why am I at work so early?
It's about air conditioning only apparently
Was better but seems to be worse again
Haha oh my
That's evidence that she doesn't like the taste of coffee
Rise up against bad shaves we say
I have only stuck a nighty on
Not much difference really
Jesus tapdancing Christ NO
Had a meeting with our new tax woman last night
She laughed at us repeatedly
Cloud computing can't help change cultures
Why can't you be on time for me?
A heart without love shrinks to the size of its loneliness
Cloudy today, maybe the garden will get some rain
Reading in the sun is also fun
Forgot what vital piece of information I was going to share
Never mind it was probably rubbish anyway

I'm into baseball, but that doesn't stop me from asking why
there are basemen throwing up in the moratorium.
Does this bother you? Are we on the same page?
You guys are going to make me laugh. That's how
much I invest in our friendship, and how little
does it matter which tunes we end up squandering,
there'll always be room for you at Home Depot.
I know because I'm over there all the time,
checking out light switches and stuff.
For some reason I find myself
converted by these acts, many of them
not even my idea. It looks to be a certain kind of day ahead,
the mistaken-for-informative brochure informed me.

I problem, profession, or better,
In my head for engineers.
We read and write twice boring chat.
It is a symbol, and the literature,
But want the quality.
Because it is what most people are
On you. Writing songs when I was bored
After my interests and cut the
Sound and arrangement, and color images unlimited
Possibilities for discussion, although
The extent of provision of resources.
Through a common search form rarely read—I,
Who is the best song slyly quickly, slowly, what I think
Or worldness air (a German mood) means
That the agreement is colonized for the spirit of an important place
To quickly and effectively vie, usually:
Experience the beauty of my feelings
For the car is zero.

"I think it's great that there's independent outlets for music, and independently-minded artists and fans, but I think it's okay too for people to listen to the new Bon Jovi album or whatever, it doesn't really matter. That dude has a Rush hat on, right, because there's people in the world that like Rush. I don't, but that's just because I don't. I'm not cooler because I don't, you know what I mean? The whole cool thing, corporate rock vs. indie rock, it's all baloney. It's just rock and roll."

Now all you have created,
and we need the Rosetta Stone,
explaining how it works.
The first places to work
as a clock, and you breezing along. Thus,
if the material or say,
but we need to beef. Therefore, we must
understand the organization and
planning site. I admit that
my job was a little easier
than most because I blog that the stream
of consciousness, that is
to say: "Everyone thought that in
my head, and I believe that the current title,
full of random points. Take pictures also me."
Judgment is swift and harsh over at HTMLGIANT. (Commenters are divided, however.) What do you think? Yeah, I know, you can't see most of the titles because of the skinny spines. But I'm counting on you poetry people to recognize the books based on what little of the cover design you can see.

There are different types of women.
Those who are brave and modest dress.
Those who have their feet warm.
And others fell quickly traveling chest out.
I have many times in different places, the women,
While at the same time, strong legs and breasts
Almost fell out of the same possible.
As you know, but not verified.
Furthermore, it is unfair. Women, the breasts are good,
And should not in the field with long legs walk.
Schuster, breasts stay, I said. Hey,
The weather was a burden.
Instead, the lords of the creation of the feet
To be admired, I have nothing, but to protect
Their own place. What high red head
When I went to the bars, all of them reported
That fair play, so that only the heart that's true.
A highlight, as I grow wiser. I changed over
Us, courage, and more modest clothes.
And here is very quiet.
I think I make a little knob high.
From the top of the T-shirt.

Installed in the electricity
Placed in the ice
All other materials and we
Expect in the ice, the same as the water,
When returned, must be
Given the necessary cables to power
The building of a fishing rod.
This special protection,
The lower chamber of the house
Is a pipe. I had
A few trees, which were the numbers
For suction kick. It allowed
The average viewer.
This was the first step, which shovels began
To pave the way for people to come to the body
And around water, so it must be
Transferred in accordance
With the beans and drainage
Systems. In addition,
The water is installed.
And the buildings as a place
Below, with greater perspective,
The property, the track for
The first time in the corner.
We dug scale, and
Coming home, you can return the car.

My copy is missing pp. 33-64. Pages 153-184 are duplicated where 33-64 should be. I need to get a new copy.
Always, always, always check to make sure a book's pages are all there and in order before you buy it.
This happened six years ago when I read White Teeth by Zadie Smith. Since then I have never been able to turn a page in a book without checking the page numbers to make sure that the page I'm turning to is the correct number.
Since it's been more than 30 days since I bought this, I can't return it for a refund. I wonder if they'll exchange it for the same item if I show them the error. Even if they won't do that, I might just give it back to them so that they can check to make sure their other copies don't have the same problem. That would be a considerate act and I think I would feel good about it.
After a brief interruption I have resumed reading Eeeee Eee Eeee. I acquired my new and correctly paginated copy via the American Express® ThankYou Rewards program, wherein 'points' accrued over time through the use of my Citi Amex card may be redeemed for merchandise. I redeemed 2500 points (just over half my total points) to acquire Eeeee Eee Eeee.
And I'm very happy to report that it's as good as people say it is and better than other people say it is.
I am very excited to be reading two 'experimental' novels at the same time. The other one is The Red Robins by Kenneth Koch. Of course I'm still reading Tristram Shandy and Gravity's Rainbow if you want to count those. Is Infinite Jest 'experimental'? Is Infinite Jest called 'experimental'? Either way, I'm reading that too.
Much love for all the above.
But back to Eeeee Eee Eeee. Stay tuned. I mean, read it. Forget my review. Forget all reviews.

Also at the meeting, which still does
not understand the results. Again, the earthquake.
For this question, I believe, and will be
appointed for you? Will be able

many of the old with stains. What I mean is
not completely smooth, some rough patches

Change the behavior, in my opinion, an
important first step. This is just a matter of law,
regardless of time or the transfer, it is easy
to determine when to end, put on the table.

There are no tigers anymore. No tigers. There is a tiger with me now. He is a useful tiger. My tiger, I call him, and, for me, he eats up everything that is around me that I don't like. Which is some days almost everything except the air; and on other days includes that foul stinking air. My tiger would eat ME up, which would be to my delight, but for a paradox which reason cannot resolve. He is my creation, my tiger, and the weather cannot, except in a symbolic sense, destroy the day.
Going back to Koch is like listening to Louis Armstrong or something. Just clears away the cobwebs and blogwebs and delivers energy like an energy drink. Or several energy drinks. Works for me anyway.

Anyway I can't even remember which one was first. It was either Leaves of Grass (which to this day I've only read a tiny fraction of), or this book by Cummings, 100 Selected Poems. Those were both teenager books (meaning books read by me as a teenager).
Then there was Eliot in college (mainly just Prufrock, which was pretty earthshaking for me at the time—I thought it was hilarious), and Koch, Schuyler, James Tate and Dean Young. (I didn't like Ashbery until a bit later, towards the end of college.)
There might have been some others in there too, I just can't remember off the top of my head what took the top of my head off. I also can't remember individual books. I guess I think more in terms of authors than books when it comes to poetry. I'm not a person who cares so much about a poetry book as "a book". I constantly forget which poems are in which books. Even though nowadays I usually try to read a book front to back, I didn't do that so much when I was starting to read poetry. I skipped around. I was just thinking about poems, not books.
So, yeah. No list from me.

So far the streets haven't spoken or
Looked less severe despite efforts
Undertaken in the name of hopscotch reform.
People drifted into footnotes of our expressions
Like ultimate fighters to come
At the place designated,
Its departure looked for, then decoded.
It has been a lovely creeping cow
All over the leaking charm. It
Should have been reinforced, a multitude
Unliked and locked up for
A pleasant night, a working definition.

Who knew they had internet up there? How is that even possible?
Whenever I look at a map of Canada I'm awestruck. Not so much because it's big. The U.S. is big too. But in Canada, especially in the west, there are
So. Few. People.
Population of Northwest Territories (2006): 41,464.
Dude. That's smaller than my neighborhood (Hamilton Heights).
Northwest Territories is 440,479 square miles. That's about .09 people per square mile. In other words, 10.6 miles per person.
Now, the population of Yellowknife, the capital, was 18,700 in 2006. So take that away from 41,464, and you find that the population of NT outside this town is just 22,764. Which means you have a population density of .05 people per square mile, or 19.3 square miles per person!!!
