Why this?

The occasional poem of my own and a generous helping of work by others that I find inspiring. Site is named for a beloved book by one of my favorite writers, Italo Calvino, whose fanciful work lights--and delights--my soul.

R to the C

Oh, man. What I wouldn't give to get my hands/eyes on this.

RC's first collection (pamphlet) of poems, published clear back in 1968.

I'm working my way through his newish brick of a bio, which I'm completely engrossed in. Just read about Near Klamath; apparently an autographed copy was going for $7,500 two years ago.

Okay--back to fantasizing about stumbling upon a copy in some dusty old bookstore in a town w/ a name like Caribou...
