Poetry parties and gardens

Robin Coste Lewis’ publication party was magical, right near the LA River, in the courtyard of a restaurant with fairy lights and fabulous food.  David St. John and Anna Journey were there and Kim and I had pink vodka drinks.  Today Stephen gardened all day although I remember how much I hated toiling in the fields as a child, my small hands pulling at the weeds, getting sore and bloody while picking up stones every spring. I remember dreaming of fields.  Now when I dream of fields, they are full of peonies which are the happiest flowers.  I ran away from fields, but in California, I planted my own garden.
