Today's book, Toujours l'amour (Ron Padgett). I try to read almost all of each book, but often skip over parts. Stuck in the middle of this book, with no relation to the dominant tone, is a chilling account of Tulsa race riots. It is the second half of a poem called "Radio," but appears to bear no relation to the first half, which really is about radios.

Ron (other Ron) tells me the line "Let's alter Altieri" is from Toner. Which raises the question, where is my copy of this book? I thought that I owned it, but I haven't seen it in at least eight years. I think it had gray cover.
