My First Worry June 19, 2009

Posted by lizrosenberg in Uncategorized.

I’m worried I won’t find enough to worry about.

Well, I just discovered you, here, not having enough to worry about.

You gave me something less to worry about tonight, when I found your gorgeous, gorgeous web site and your most generous words.

Thank you, Liz.

i love your new book ‘home repair’.
my home needs repair too.
i hear some voices outside – they sound like kids.
when i say kids i mean young adults.
it’s ten pm.
to liz:
whatever you do.
whatever you say.
however you put yourself together.
to me – you are the poet first.

even when you toss out words like counterfiet currency.

Dear Liz,

I sent you an email today, which included my story about a certain Coffee Maker.
Then I decided it was time to visit your Blog, and I read your comments about cluster headaches. Yes, “cluster-f***” would be a difficult phrase for a words-smith such as you to have to utter or write. And as you say, the word “cluster” might evoke images of flowers. But put “cluster” with another word and you get other images. The first one that comes to my mind is “cluster-bombs”, those horrible weapons perfected by our own military so that…well, what one bomb can do, a few dozen can do so much better! So, perhaps inspired by that image, how about renaming the malady “cluster-bomb headaches”. No one will think of flowers, and the phrase might truly evoke the idea of the highest level of pain. I am so sorry you have been suffering from these, and I hope and wish that you are now free of them!
