I tend to like old print matter & new pics myself.

The poem I’m reading from Fri. (tho I will also be reading some other stuff) I feel lacks a bit as it’s based on pieces of elegy, which lack lyric vitality, specifically pieces of occasional verse in elegaic meter by Sulpicia, Tibullus, the most famous poet in her uncle's circle, & rip off artist Goethe [not pound’s (juicier, lower class) propertius or zuk’s catullus.]

sent off the poem that's after that one; not happy with it quite yet -- Goethe's roman elegies with a lot of freud civilization & its discontents thrown in (lots o’ dada) –- very silly prayers to priapus -- warming up to tibullus’ original –- tibullus created the figure of the domina in literature
