    bob (-! *? I am listening with a wink. just read the dimension to love poem it was delicious when I read about the cromodynamics I started laughing out loud. such is the nature of emotions all my poetry is about still snapshots of one page emotion... sorta impressionistic. if you read some enjoy.

    Just discovered Bob Hicok in recent New Yorker. Varieties of Cool. all about grapes, and a friend with a cough that became an acronym. Great stuff.

Sudden Movements

My father's head has become a mystery to him.
We finally have something in common.
When he moves his head his eyes
get big as roses filled
with the commotion of spring.
Not long ago he was a man
who had tomato soup for lunch
and dusted with the earnestness
of a gun fight. Now he's a man
