Today's notebook [15 Jul 2005|11:15pm]

Snapshots from work in progress.

I see the poem in the sky; the previous tenants have painted the wallpaper, wallpapered the paintings, and so on. Yet each has received a security deposit back, in full. In short, I'm afraid of setting an example.

To strip this away and hear your side again is astounding, like falling down the stairs yesterday --- I groaned and it hurt. Today it is my night to cook and tomorrow the rent is due; consequently I believe that if I write hard enough now, we will fall in love forever.

Softly, this is going nowhere. I look for direction, the hardbound book in your hand. In lieu of advice, I find uncomfortable lines, like, how did I come to own this lead blanket? Sheltering on a stranger's sofa from the hail outside, I begin to envy the dents in the pavement.

Upcoming film about Charles Olson [15 Jul 2005|11:16pm]

"Gloucester filmmaker Henry Ferrini wants to usher in a new era of appreciation for the writer. Ten years in the making, Ferrini is in the final phases of 'Poet & the City,' a documentary on Olson and his beloved seaport. This Saturday, the filmmaker will host an event at the Cape Ann Historical Association including a screening of his work-in-progress and readings by Olson scholars."

The excerpt is from an article in today's Globe about the film, which also has some interesting tidbits about Olson.

I'm not sure who the Olson scholars reading at the event will be, but the article does say that John Malkovich will probably be narrating the final version of the film.

I don't think I'm going to make it to Gloucester this weekend, but I'll keep it in mind.

As always, you can use BugMeNot to read the Globe article if need be.
