Pinquitos, 2014
  1. not finding the "debris and organic matter" in my dried beans and breaking a tooth
  2. stepping on a piece of broken glass while wearing espadrilles
  3. getting salmonella after eating raw eggs in cookie dough and cake batter all of these years episode-free
  4. walking between two cars with running engines, that happen to be blocking a crosswalk, when the rear car accidentally accelerates and crushes my knees between the two cars
  5. losing my memory

I'm Still in the Seventies

Handbound, 2014

This is the second to last printed page of Michael Whitt's book of poems, La Ventana. The copyright is 1975.

It's such a beautiful book. 

I poked around a bit and found that he began a general practice of medicine in a small town in Northern California 45 years ago and has remained a country doctor, writing poems, and watching birds.

I'm inspired.
