Gerry Gilbert

I was just thinking in the last half hour of a Gery Gilbert poetry book from the Gronk series called May 1931. Maybe 3 years ago I made a video reading a bit of it one night. I was v tired when I recorded it, but when I couldn’t recall the name of the poetry book I went hunting for the video. Lo there it was! The book captured and not just the title and details and poems recorded but my long gone candy stripe couch for posterity. Who knew Gerry Gilbert would imprint my candy stripe couch to digital pixels along with providing me with a weather treasure. Rock on Gerry whereever you may be now — resting peacefully I hope.

Did you feel that chilly wind today? What an arctic gust she was! Lordy! The weather data insisted 6 or 4 degrees but it was so cold I find that measurement did not capture the experience. Science bedamned. It was fecking freezing and I had my arctic parka on.
