…gemino h. abad, critic and literary god, before me in the flesh…
today marks our first day for poetry workshop. he’s behind his desk, beaming, smiling, reading aloud fragments from a book.
“your best friend should be the dictionary.”
“it’s what you do with language, and it’s what language does to you. hmm, that calls for a paper…”
“you have to be more careful because sometimes words can demolish you.” (ganda.)
this is the honeymoon period, the calm before the storm, a time i cherish before we go headlong into poetry workshop mode.
first day high. 🙂
let’s see how things fare with j. neil garcia tomorrow (echoing rachel zoe: i die.).
