Fabrits

I bathe in the morning for an hour and read. Often I fall asleep with the book in my hand, but I never drop the book in the water. I used to bathe too long and then hurry up so as not to be late to work. Now I wake up earlier so I can drink coffee for a while and revise poems. That's what I do now for the last three days. Joe Young told me about that, told me about how it's fun to sit around and drink coffee. This morning I added music to the routine.

Wake, bathe and read, drink coffee and revise, listen to music. It's like a full day that's over by 8:10. Then I ride my bike to work.

In the past I only "took cream" occasionally at dessert. Now I drink coffee with cream in the morning because otherwise I will never finish my one gallon of milk.

Ah, blogging.

Yesterday I wrote the best poem I ever wrote. It's about Elisabeth Elliot, the missionary/evangelist. A section, then:

Once she discussed Chekhov's story "Verotchka"
At length, off the cuff,
In order to warn against the dangers of holding hands.
It actually makes a lot of sense, if
You don't want to get laid.
No one wants to not get laid,
But sometimes you want to stay a virgin a while.
That's important to people and I support it.
My advice to these people would be
Don't hold hands.

Then at night in bed I watch a movie that I downloaded during the day. Last night I watched Lonesome Jim starring Casey Affleck and Liv Tyler and Seymour Cassel and I kept wanting to punch it. But I could not fall asleep.

Thanks Josh. I have revised it some more. Working on a book makes me crazy a little more or less.
