John, I'm Only Dancing

I was going to post an interesting recipe today, but I found this inscription at the last minute and wanted to share:

John K**** is a zombie hoof!


John K***** digs on all the motley girls in the grade!


Written on "Reflections on a Gift of Watermelon Pickle... and Other Modern Verse." Published by Scott, Foresman and Co., 1966.

I love this. It is so the way kids talk. Very sweet.

This is still my favorite collection of poetry. Simple, accessible imagery from world-class poets. The eponymous poem is pretty amazing, as is the William Carlos Williams entry. Wish I had this edition, though (mine is just a trade paperback).

Andrew, email me and I'll send it to you:

And I agree with you, it's a great anthology.

This is exactly what I like about you, Michael! Pay it forward.

I suppose this kind of communication has now been replaced by texting. I just hope real books will never replaced by Kindles. There's something so special about real books.

i got this book as a scholastic paperback in high school - and it is still one of my favourite anthologies (even after most of a PhD in english).
