International Incidents

1.

Wang Ping asks if
we went to a seder
last night
She did,
in Minneapolis
No, I say, we're not
observant
as though we constantly
overlook details


2.

The teachers in the lounge
crowd around the
Swedish visitor
You must be very proud
one of them beams
to be Swedish
She has no idea
what that means
She says,
I don't _dislike_
being Swedish


3.

Who's ever met a Bulgarian?
he would shout in the bar
Then one night
two homely blond sisters
smiled and said
_We_ are Bulgarians!
They smiled for two weeks
then went away forever



Robert Hershon
Calls from the Outside World
Hanging Loose Press

The above is a poem that was retired from Poetry Daily archives last week.

Besides a bedpan I did acquire some other birthday loot. K. introduced me to the The Singing Loins with a double cd of their ballsy Celticish folk songs. (Check out their web site for some mp3s. )

I had to treat myself for the upcoming baseball season so I bought a Red Sox replica road jersey. I might have an opportunity to wear it at some Spring Training games in Phoenix or Tucson in a few weeks.

Since we are 'Talkin Baseball', I should mention that I had a good $3 find at The Book End yesterday. A hardcover copy of Sandy Koufax: A Lefty's Legacy by Jane Leavy. One of the better sports books or just plain books I have read about one of the classiest guys inside and outside of baseball. Jane Leavy does a wonderful job seperating the man from the myth and uses intercalary chapters to recap his perfect game from Sep. 9th, 1965.

Red State Librarian sent me this link to a Korean Food Journal. Hmmmm spicy squid. I feel a trip to Aoeshe for lunch coming up.

I love the poem. Your birthday gifts were cool too. Who wouldn't want a CD of ballsy Celtic folksongs?

I want to read more of Mr. Hershon...
