in the flesh

…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.).
