Harper's bike shop team finished first, in about thirty minutes, so they won the coveted trophy known as "Buster." They will bring Buster back for the next alleycat. Most people finished the ride in about an hour. After the ride, we gave out prizes (including Tomato Head gift certificates and cookies) for style and stuff.
Your article helped make our event a success. Again, thanks.

P.F. #1 has become born and grown and lived and shown its charity and, to quote Whitman, it will forever "be curious, not judgmental." It has not been solved. Near 200 contributions have been made, and near 10,000 people have gandered."

for the first time ever, more people will live in cities, this year, more in cities than out of cities.
also, the sunset lines up with manhattan's streets. it does this twice a year. today it does it. it did so in may, too.

from the country the day of the hurricane,
trees were across the road and small branches
kept rattling on the roof of the car
There was ten feet or more of water
making the parkways impassible with wind
bringing more rain in sheets. Brown torrents
gushed up through new sluices in the
valley floor so that I had to take what road
I could find bearing to the south and west,
to get back to the city. I passed through
extraordinary places, as vivid as any
I ever saw where the storm had broken
the barrier and let through
a strange commonplace: Long, deserted avenues
with unrecognized names at the corners and
drunken looking people with completely
foreign manners. Monuments, institutions
and in one place a large body of water
startled me with an acre or more of hot
jets spouting up symmetrically over it. Parks.
I had no idea where I was and promised myself
I would some day go back to study this
curious and industrious people who lived
in these apartments, at these sharp
corners and turns of intersecting avenues
with so little apparent communication
with an outside world. How did they get
cut off this way from representation in our
newspapers and other means of publicity
when so near the metropolis, so closely
surrounded by the familiar and famous?

Ben Lindquist is a contemporary painter, working through traditional
folk art and American Realism. With an arrangement of maquettes and
large-scale paintings, Lindquist illustrates a wonderfully perverse
and purposeful image of our relationship to the outdoors.
Meet the artist Friday night.

particular video is scheduled for tomorrow night - but we will be

just found out there's a new documentary re Townes Van Zandt, a favorite musician. check out the post at this blog for more about the man and the movie. And click on title, above, for the movie's site, which has a trailer.
Seems it's showing in Nashville starting today, stopping on the 26th, in the Nashville Film Festival. Otherwise it may be bought. Might make a good graduation present for somebody.
When I’m older I write only once a week. The rest of the time I heal and drink juice cocktails and read and talk to people. This method seems to work for me and over time I even start to fart poems. The Corcoran asks me to do an exhibit of poems associated with infrared photographs of farts. I spend days matching poems to the right farts, finishing in just enough time to drive to Florida and see my great-uncle, my separated cousin, and her two babies.
A boy can be your boyfriend without actually being your boyfriend. On the way you stop to wander through Glen Echo Park. The ancient cries of fun echo and re-echo. Years later I remember holding your hand. My memory is unreliable.
Favorable notice in another paper. On the fire escape the man asked me if I had hyperthyroid condition. Offended, I insisted my thyroid was normal.
I realize that I have been as repressed in my poetry as I have been foolish in real life. When my writing goes well I attribute it to God. When I kissed you in the car I blamed myself. We were in the church for hours discussing our favorite cathedrals. There is always something I have not bothered to remember.
You are my secret best friend. I am a gas station attendant. When someone gives me a tip it is like I have done something great. I feel great as I pump gas.
one of the better-designed sites I've seen
must mention that haven't got the format right for blogger- I mean, the poem looks different as posted at octopus magazine number 07.
