To Ninety-second Street and Broadway I have come.

Outside the windows is New York.

I came here from St. Louis in a covered wagon overland

Behind the matchless prancing pair of Eliot and Ezra Pound.

And countless moist oases took me in along the way, and some

I still remember when I lift my knife and fork.

The Earth keeps turning, night and day, spit-roasting all the tanned

Tired icebergs and the polar bears, which makes white almost contraband.

The biosphere on a rotisserie emits a certain sound

That tells the stars that Earth was moaning pleasure while it drowned.

The amorous white icebergs flash their brown teeth, hissing.

They’re watching old porn videos of melting icebergs pissing.

The icebergs still in panty hose are lesbians and kissing.

The rotting ocean swallows the bombed airliner that’s missing.

From “Poem By the Bridge at Ten-Shin.”  Full poem here

For one more hour this is my office on a lounge chair by the pool in Palm Springs.  Then I am officially off the clock and on the hunt for the perfect sweet potato recipe for tomorrow’s feast.  I want those potatoes to be savory, but I also want to add bourbon.  Will let you know how it all turns out.

Happy Turkey Day y’all!  Eat your hearts out tomorrow.

Some random shots from a recent trip to Rome.  It rained for most of my stay but that just meant more time inside drinking negronis and eating cacio e pepe which was a-ok with me.
