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

    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
    by Ron Padgett

Poem

I'm in the house.
It's nice out: warm
sun on cold snow.
First day of   spring
or last of   winter.
My legs run down
the stairs and out
the door, my top
half   here typing
