ending the year

i want to remember Regina Derieva who passed away on december 11. i met her briefly twice, 2005 in malmö & 2007 in stockholm. on both occasions for international poetry festivals. & speaking of her poetry i enjoyed it a great deal although we lived in different literary traditions. as for everything else i could say, it’s better stated on the arc blog & in the comments. all i can add is a brief poem

(the gun)

i. m Regina Derieva

central london pub

pint of bitter winter

call from alexander in stockholm

you have retired

bitter winter indeed

at least no snow for now
