Some more poems I like

Why not.

"Rufus the Obscure" —Finding his poems online seems to be not easy. Fortunately there are six of them here.

"The Facility Finder" —When I saw that he dedicated his book to Kenneth Koch, I was all set to like him. And I was not disappointed.

"The Bunny Gives Us a Lesson in Eternity" —These little commentaries I'm doing aren't adding much to the poems are they.

By the way, unlike some people, I'm never able to just remember a poem that I read somewhere. If you asked me, "What's a good poem in a magazine you read recently," I wouldn't be able to think of anything, even though I know there are some. My brain just doesn't work that way. I need multiple choice. So my point is, all these poems I'm linking to, I had to look up by searching for the author's name. That's the only way I can do it. Here's two more.

"Sea-Glass Rations" —She has as good a knack as anyone for saying things that seem simultaneously nonsensical and true. I would like to call this poem kaleidoscopic, and I will, and I did.

"Aubade 11/18" — I just figured out what to do when reading Coconut: use the "zoom out" on your browser. Do it twice maybe. It will bring the text down to an attractive size.
