what a city

wow. i am exhausted. But what a time yesterday. Drank a lot of rounds at McSorleys and got the t-shirt. I am was disappointed in the poetry selection at The Strand. Found two great bookstores. One was connected to a housing project with homeless people with HIV/Aids victims. One of the highlights yesterday was St.marks bookstore. WAY WAY better selection of poetry than The Strand. Picked up:

Geoffrey Dyer The Dirty Halo of Everything
Joseph Lease The Room
Lisa Jarnot Ring of Fire
Clark Coolidge Mesh
Noah Eli Gordon The Frequencies

St. Mark's. WOW what history.

I'll put up pictures when I return. Going to hit the Whitney exhibit today and some galleries in Chelsea. Maybe Times Square.

However, this hospitality has never extended to Irish poets w…
