travel poetics

Back to katowice, Poland tomorrow. Hanging with my girlfriend and her family for Yule time. Bringing my notebook and a few pens and see what crops up.

1) In Transit by Tony Baker
2) The Form of a City Changes Faster, Alas, Than the Human Heart by Jacques Roubaud
3) Rhode Island Notebook by Gabe Gudding
4) Nostalgia for Unknown Cities by Ken Edwards

Will perhaps have a smidgen of internet. so only a bit of time online. Reading and writing. Walking the streets. Poems/place.

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