And assimilated by everyone, love was exiled from the world.”
And should be removed from out vocabularies.
Us did not believe in the separation of a subject and an object.

Duane, you gave me a thrill once by mentioning Blank Gun Silencer in a bio note in American Poetry Review. I just made a trip to my archives and found your address in a box of index cards. Yours is between two poets even more widely published then yourself: Lyn Lifshin and Gerald Locklin. Good to see you’re still at it. Are you still at the same address as the early 90s?
