Looks like there’ll be new weekly “prompts” to encourage and commune, at a few places – We Write Poems, Big Tent Poetry. And Writer’s Island starts today, even! But for today, I’ve already come up with a poem, might get to Writer’s Island “Message in a Bottle” prompt tomorrow.
Leslie Buck, the designer of New York City’s ubiquitous Anthora paper coffee cup, passed away this week as noted in the New York Times.
The image here I grabbed from a Google image search for “anthora cup”, the 2nd image that comes up, happens to be from the wesbite of a design store around the block from me! Krudmart – damn, what a big small world!
arriving early for Flushing Meadows
to meet at the Unisphere
8:00 in the morning
on a wide & grimy NYC street

we parked by a Queens diner
Greek – in a lighted cabinet

in an anthora cup
stepping back out
into the sun & haze
I felt so legit
