THANKS, TODD!!!

Saturday, April 25, 2009


4:40 p.m.:  Just before seeing the movie Adventureland, received gifts of two of his books from my new friend, American poet Todd Colby (after presumptuously hinting around that I would love to have them and does he have any extra copies, and "Oh, that's ok, I'll just buy them from Amazon . . .").

1 a.m.-ish:  Dropped one of the books on the foot of a young Asian woman after possibly being jostled by her on the subway platform.  We both looked surprised, then mildly annoyed, and both started to stoop down to retrieve the book.  Then I said, "Oh, I'm sorry!" and kind of laughed.  Then I bent down to pick up the book and she kind of laughed and kept on walking.  Then I thought, "Damn it, I bent the corner of my new book!" and spent some time compulsively smoothing the corner with my thumb before I started reading it again.
