Dean and I watched the Democratic Presidential Debate in Las Vegas last night. I thought Hillary Clinton did very well. I also liked Barak Obama. Edwards was a little disappointing. A surprise for me: I think Biden would make a good president.

Did anyone else notice the little love-fest going on between Biden and Clinton? I am predicting it now: Clinton-Biden as an eventual ticket.

I worked for a couple hours yesterday on a poem in the shape of a washing-machine agitator. I think I have lost my mind.

I've been strangely obsessed with the shape of poems lately myself. Wrote a bunch of prose poems exactly 1"x5" ea justified. Wrote a few 3x5s as well. Taking "form" way too literally, huh? We just have to write through them to see what's on the other side.

Peter, wanna wrap Reilly's apron strings around the poem?!

Peter said...

B, E, T: Yes it is a little weird.

T: I thought of you and Reilly while I was working on this.

I wrote a poem in the shape of a horse. I have even submitted it to a journal today. If there is a fast-track to rejection, I think this poem may be on it. It was so much fun to write, though. I felt like an Etch-a-Sketch.

Hey, I wrote a sonnet this week, so anything is possible.

Yep, I'm going with Hillary for the win. Go Hilly!
