Notes to myself—
Check word choice & syntax
from Papa Hemingway’s SAR
for matador poem.   

Review Ariel & Daddy stuff.
Am I stripping enough veneer
off the reality?  

Lighthouses & Fear make
uncomfortable combinations
but great imagery.  

Sexton. London. Wallace. Berryman.
I shouldn’t be this comfortable in the dark.
But when I re-read them, they shake
the grip of the earth and live again.
