    I've been meaning to say for a while that I really really love your signature..."if fragrance has a gender then so does all art".

    No I haven't seen that one. Why does this poem remind you of it?

    I am not a poetry aficionado, but here is one of my favorites:

    From William Blake - Auguries of Innocence

    To see a world in a grain of sand
    And a heaven in a wild flower,
    Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
    And eternity in an hour.

    This talk of poetry between us inspired me to post about the Persian poet Rm on my Basenotes blog here.

    IF YOU in the village think that my work was a good one,
    Who closed the saloons and stopped all playing at cards,
    And haled old Daisy Fraser before Justice Arnett,
    In many a crusade to purge the people of sin;
    Why do you let the milliner's daughter Dora,
    And the worthless son of Benjamin Pantier
    Nightly make my grave their unholy pillow?

    —Edgar Lee Masters "A. D. Blood"

    I read some of them years ago. It's been a while since I've looked at any of them. I'll have to see where they can be read online. Edgar Lee Masters's curious conceit was to have the dead eulogize each other. It must have been quite a shock to the 1915 reading public! Are you a poet yourself, or just a poetry reader?

    Oh, BTW, I guess we're friends now. Where's the champagne?

    Yes, I loved Williams's poems back in my own English lit days. I saw your reference and looked the poem up online. I used to have a book of them around here somewhere, among the piles... I'm also a huge fan of e e cummings. Do you know his poems? If not, they're definitely worth checking out.

    Here's a fvorite e e cummings of mine:

    let it go - the
    smashed word broken
    open vow or
    the oath cracked length
    wise - let it go it
    was sworn to

    let them go - the
    truthful liars and
    the false fair friends
    and the boths and
    neithers - you must let them go they
    were born
    to go

    let all go - the
    big small middling
    tall bigger really
    the biggest and all
    things - let all go

    so comes love

    ~ e. e. cummings ~

    "Let the snake wait under
    his weed
    and the writing
    be of words, slow and quick, sharp
    to strike, quiet to wait,
    -- through metaphor to reconcile
    the people and the stones.
    Compose. (No ideas
    but in things) Invent!
    Saxifrage is my flower that splits
    the rocks"

If fragrance has a gender, so does all art.
