    Such a fluid writing!
    Pagett´s poems lead you into a great swirl, while you think you´re just admiring the view.

    Since nobody wrote a comment
    about Ron Padgett
    i must correct this inequity!
    Ron Padgett is a hilarious
    and erudite (although i hate this word)
    poet, who has brought me to the point
    of wheezing, of holding up my hand
    to gesture STOP! i need to pee

    Ron Padgett has made me pee
    from laughter
    i love this poet, whose frenchness
    belies the fact that he is from Tulsa
    a very unfrench place. But if there is
    an aire apparent to Appollinaire
    a ladder to climb to greet old Max Jacob
    a strange urge to run when meeting Andre Breton
    it is a place held (oh so strongly) in my heart

Chocolate Milk

Oh God! It's great!
to have someone fix you
chocolate milk
and to appreciate their doing it!
Even as they stir it
in the kitchen
your mouth is going crazy
for the chocolate milk!
The wonderful chocolate milk!
