Poem of the Moment
YOU'RE NOT THE FIRST
YOU'RE NOT THE LAST
ANOTHER DAY
ANOTHER CRASH
--Graffiti poem from the old laundry room of my Aunt and Uncle's house (now a kitchenette) This poem was there along with all these phone numbers, ballpoint-pen'd on a wall. That room was remodeled years ago, I thought of the second half of this poem last week but couldn't recall the first two lines until last night.

"Swimming in the afternoon"
--Sole entry in Kafka's journal, on learning of the outbreak of WWI in 1914. This was a footnote in a some cool Slate Dali coverage -- I guess there's a new show of his work, NPR had some coverage of it.
