Just Another Day in The Splendid City (September 2010)

Apologies, dear blog readers, if this post is somewhat disjointed.

But self has been trying to write poetry.


Virginia Woolf, self discovered from the book she is reading (Moments of Being:  Unpublished Autobiographical Writings of Virginia Woolf), used no punctuation.  They were put in later, by her husband (and editor, how convenient), Leonard Woolf.

Crowds are thicker than ever

Especially on Second Avenue

Now self thinks the tenor of the demonstrations is growing serious

There are more more more policemen.

At the Whitney, a pianist played with his elbows

On a Yamaha Baby Grand

Intermittently, he reached into the body of the piano and banged the strings

with a pack of cards.

Hmm, self thought.

Very “Philip Glass.”

Afterwards, a young man in the audience (wearing Bermuda shorts, probably a tourist), raised a hand to ask a question:

“What is your relationship to your music?”

The performer said:  “I don’t understand the question.”

No nasty cabbies today.

Not like yesterday:  the cabbie smoked and smoked.

And today, two cupcakes

From the Purple Elephant Cake Boutique

On 82nd and Lexington.

And self follows up the two cupcakes with a glass of ice-cold Amala Springs Chardonnay (2008).  HA HA HAAAA

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
