Up at 5:30.
Took dad to 9:30 appointment with accountant. Finished to early for lunch.
Home, nap 11-1. Read quota of The Mao Case + about 10 p. of Pankey.
Assorted email, phone calls, dithering.
Went out at 3. Wrote 2 hrs. at Starbucks.
Dinner 6:30; Anthony and Beverly dropped by so I could go out a little early.
Listened to Anthony Braxton, Victoriaville 2017 - a remarkable solo alto sax document that includes abstract (but often lyrical) passages in his various “languages,” and explorations of “Body and Soul” and (uncredited) “Everything Happens To Me” and “What’ll I Do.”
Reading at PRB, w/ Diane Ward (strong prose-y sequence on Hurricane Katrina), Celina Su (liked the ideas/conceits more than the writing-as-writing), and SA Smyth (best poems concerned metaphor and geometry); said hi to Joseph Mosconi, Harold Abromavitz, Erica Kaufman (whom I didn’t recognize from NY at first); picked up a couple of chapbooks.
Home by 11. Went to bed soon after.
