[David Shapiro in the poetry section]

Something about his father
and a very expensive Stradivarius

An anecdote about two different
Elizabeth Bishops

and his Gotham Book Mart Award
Almost scary to say it I think he said

He has a terrible disease
So did Jim Schuyler

Fairfield Porter
Southampton summerhouse

Jasper Johns Screen Piece 3
Ted Berrigan Sonnets

No one memorizes poetry anymore
John Ron Anne Ken Frank

What a funeral he had
Harbormaster recitation

Seidel he sneered Notley
He was rereading Woolf The Waves

Brooklyn College Brain
Read my poems for yourself

and see
if you hate them
