Another 30

Diagnosis: bronchitis and probably mild pneumonia. But I've been on antibiotics for three days now and am starting to feel like I"m going to survive. I still have horrendous coughing fits, but if I'm sitting still I actually don't feel too bad. When I move around or talk, though, it goes downhill fast. Nevertheless, I managed to finish my 9th round of 30 poems in 30 days yesterday. Here are the latest titles:

1. Wheel of Time
2. Sonnenizio on a Line from Berrigan
3. Ashes and Blood Make a Bitter Rouge
4. Gold
5. Sonnenizio on a Line from Bruner
6. under the rough bark (haiku)
7. The Prince
8. Blue
9. The Fishwives Have Swallowed their Pride
10. Kawaii
11. shadows merge into (tanka)
12. Sonnenizio on a Line from Frost
13. Mozart's Bones
14. The Way it is with Wool
15. She Has Run Out of His Reach
16. The Fetishist
17. Elton John Licks his Rhinestone-Covered Boots
18. Spike and Buffy Fight on their Fiftieth Wedding Anniversary
19. Supplication
20. At Chernobyl they Monitor the Devil
21. Kermit the Frog Joins the Revolution
22. orange trees blooming (haiku)
23. Leaning on the Velvet Rope over the San Andreas Fault
24. off the Sidewalk
25. A Visit with the Anasazi
26. You are as Far as Invention, and I am as Far as Memory (cento)
27. Meleagris gallopavo

29. Seventeen Steps
30. see that dark hump of (tanka)

I'm so sorry to hear you're sick! Hope you're able to get some good rest and feel better soon.

And I *really really really* want to read the Buffy poem. And the Kermit one. And, well, pretty much all of them. . .

Thanks Stephanie!

Arlene, when are you coming back to 30:30?! We miss you.

Theresa, you may be the only one that wants to read my Buffy poems (yes, I've actually written two so far). I'm not sure how many markets are interested in publishing something like that, but that hasn't stopped me from sending them out. I could post them in my office on Zoetrope if you really want to read them.

Did you get more than one chest x-ray? I'm sure you know how careful you must be with bronchitis/pneumonia. Get well soon. Very soon!

I'm finally starting to feel better - thanks Patti!
