on the balcony of beach home with glass o' wine thinking

today is the first day it's just me at my beach home. i unpacked my things, drove to the market for foodstuffs. i made a pan seared salmon with angel hair pasta--a cream, caper, & parsley sauce--it was lovely. i also booked my air tix for my upcoming nyc readings, which im pretty excited about. also writing & just plain ole acclimating to florida time. it's nice to hear the ocean. i got rain all afternoon.

i was very sad to hear of leslie scalapino's passing. she truly changed american poetry & will forever be missed by her readers. my prayers go out to her loved ones,
