before i go to bed tonight here's a pic i found by one of the coolest dudes in poetry, thom gunn. i goddamn love this pic, from gunn's izod jersey to the panther on his forearm to the books in the room. it makes me happy looking at the photo, makes me damned glad, despite the shit, to be alive.

I think his piece "Touch" is a perfect example of what poems can do.

that is a masterful poem, ryan. quiet, loving, humane, chaste and erotic all at the same time.
