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. The hardest part of packing is choosing the right books. I am interested in exploring the poetics of place/travel. Alas I am bringing the following books to re-read and write with:

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.
