New Year's Letter
From David Shapiro:
Sinbad was not bad. Sysyphus has a bad back. Happy Birthday to me and to all a good night. May the new year not be the worst so far. This very day let us take out our insides and make them the same as our outsides. "The worst so far, oh hold it off if you can with your thumb or pivot finger (it doesn't exist.)" Let Elizabeth be right--one year in the past is enough to be the most terrible so far. She was speaking of a whole century like moonlight digested by a crane and held in his beak like a worldly comparison. Excuse me "while I disappear." Frank Sinatra discovers poetry...
