Rob Miller, the South Carolina Democrat rnuinng against Joe “You
lie!” Wilson this fall has just sent me an email asking for another
$25 contribution. So many worthy Democrats, so little money!

Dream Song No4

The relationship between the poet, Henry and Mr Bones is not easily
undertood but I adore this poem for its wry humour, resigned despair and
realism. How often have I seen a beautiful girl in a bar or rertraunt and
thought "what is she doing with him?" but realising that if she were with
me, people would be thinking exactly the same! I like the fact that it
would take "4 other people" to disaude him from ravishing her, such is his
desire, her husband alone would not be enough! But more than anything its
the despair that I can connect with in this poem, the buzzing of the
restraunt reminds me of the white noise of radio static that you might hear
when trying to contact someone in a desperate but ultimately hopeless
