me, an acmeist

just for a day

between chores and errands read parts of osip mandelstam's collected critical prose

then reread seamus heaney's essay on the mandelstams

 acmeists demanded a hellenic clarity

a 'thisness' of our world

acmeism reminded me a little of the poems of thom gunn


the day ended with talking with jonathan hayes on the phone

then logging on to watch the landing of the curiosity mars probe
