I just came back from my mailbox, which contained a cash grant from Giorno Poetry Systems! This is my second grant from John Giorno's foundation; the first was in 2000. I'm grateful and happy for the acknowledgement and support.

Doing a poem dance,

Terese

Way to go, Terese! I've never gotten a grant. (Never applied for one either, but that's another story.) Erato Rules.

Thanks, Tim. I'm not sure how Mr. Giorno and company award them; there was no real application process, and it's kind of a mystery to me. I don't know him personally, though he may have heard me read somewhere (entirely possible, since he's been on the poetry scene since the 60s and probably earlier). I did send him a few poems on several occasions. I remember when his poems were in the Museum of Modern Art, on tape, which seems like a zillion years ago (around 1970 probably) and at the time constituted the most publicized of the poetry avante-garde. I was once at a party at his loft, some years after that, but never actually met him as he was surrounded by the boho glitterati. Anyway I was pathetically shy at the time.

Dear Mike

I'll try to be worthy of your non-jealousy! Thanks for the Carrollian cheers!

Wow Terese, terrific for you. Real money. You can buy poetry books with it or just spread it out on the bed and roll around on it and say, I am a poet!

Congrats!

Tom
