well, i'm not a native english speaker and english is after dutch and
german my third language
i started to read richard brautigan in my teens in the seventies, bought
all his books in dutch and also in english
his prose is very poetic as his poetry is veru prosaic
but this poem is teh want i love most
it give me a warm and human feeling, a feeling of not being alone in this
universe and a feeling of eternity; life of all kinds, all species in some
strange harmony

For the earlier poster commenting on In Watermelon Sugar. Please be assured
that it doesn't even come close to the best of Brautigan's prose.For that
please read A Confederate General From Big Sur or The Hawkline Monster.
Brautigan's gift for distillation, illustrated in this and other poems
shows up also in a wonderful short very very short story from Revenge of
the Lawn entitled The Scarlatti Tilt which I consider the par excellence
white lightning of what a short story out to be and do.

im reading 'in watermelon sugar' which is kind of tripping me out... its
very very abstract, im usually pretty astute at seeing metaphors but for
the love of god if i read the words "watermelon" and "sugar" in another
sentence after finishing this book ill have to slap myself!
right up my alley so to speak... i was starting to wonder about brautigan
but maybe ill give him a closer look.. im a big fan of chuck palahniuk,
another author who tries to write in a different WAY which is at the very
least brave in an artistic sense.
kudos to mr brautigan on this excellent poem.

some recent favs of mine:
"Crow" by Ted Hughes
"Haunted" by Chuck Palahniuk
"One Door Away From Heaven" by Dean Koontz* (fans of brautigan should get
a kick out of this one)
