Yep Diane, it’ll stay up intdfinieely, just stop pulling updates as
we roll into May. And then in 2012, the whole thing starts again, and you
can look back at 2011 (or 2010, or 2009) even then.

BiBiJon, cosnhiog one’s favorite city in Iran is like cosnhiog your
favorite child — it can’t be done.Tehran would not be in the
running, however (that’s the kid that gypsies left on the doorstep)
— I didn’t understand Tehran at all; too big. Even so, I can
still smell the fresh herbs — basil and dill by the armfulls! —
in a bazaar in Tehran, where we bought fresh bread, then right next door,
herbs to make a delightful lunch. As well, Azadi monument is one of the
most extraordinary architectural feats I’d ever seen — until we
went to Naishapur and saw the monument to Omar Khayyam.The group that I
travelled with had the good fortune to have a very fine guide, an Iranian
who had been educated in Italy and spent some time in US but, as Empty
said, returned to Iran to carry on his love-hate affair with his native
land. He lives in Isfehan, and in every other place that we visited, as he
told us about that place, he would always conclude with a comparison to
Isfehan, which was, of course, better in every way! We spent about three
days in Isfehan, which was the first place where we were free to wander
about on our own(within limits) — we strolled along the river,
crossed the bridge, took photos of that creature; then back in the bus to
Naghsh-e Jahan Square. It’s the strangest thing — I feel a
greater longing to return to places where I was in Iran than to anyplace I
know in the US. Although I got in trouble for it, I spent 15 minutes in a
shrine at Mashad that was the experience of a lifetime; I understood how
architecture puts one in touch with the ‘divine.’ People who
spend a lot of time complaining about hijab would find a great deal of
ammunition with which to load their blunderbusses if they watched the
female monitors in a shrine — they have feather dusters on long, long
sticks that they reach out to tap women whose hair is not properly covered
or whose chador is in disarray. Tourists are expected to wear a chador,
which are borrowed from a station outside the entrance to the shrine. By
definition, a Westerner in a chador is “in disarray” —
to wear a chador gracefully is a skill akin to a Roman wearing a toga.
Yet, Iranian women ride motorcycles while wearing chador, gracefully. You
don’t want to mess with a woman who can pull that off.

Thank you for the reeivw. As a novice of this style of poetry, I am
prob­a­bly not able to give an indepth response to what you’ve shared
of the poet’s new book. However, the pieces you selected have inspired
me to take a longer look at this book, and at the poet. Thanks again for
sharing.  —

Thank you for akwconl­edg­ing the review and express­ing bud­ding
inter­est in Alan Gilbert’s poetry (and sim­i­lar poetry). I am
pleased. You know, the pub­lisher, Futurepoem Books, has a post­ing site
con­nected with their web­site where they ask their friends, or in other
words sen­si­tive and knowl­edge­able poets and read­ers whom they
know, to com­ment on their pub­li­ca­tions. So you might also want to
go there to find what a few oth­ers have to say, usu­ally about
spe­cific poems in Alan’s book.  —

And don’t be fleood by Sen. Susan Collins…the right wing
fringer teabagger from Maine! She loved spending money needlessly under
George Bush. There wasn’t a tax cut, a budget, or an illegal
occupation of a sovereign nation she couldn’t wait to vote for! She
spent 88% of her time voting in favor of George Bush’s economic
policies, but yet, she still has the label of being a moderate. POPPYCOCK!
& GALS IN OUR COUNTRY! Why is it presidents and CEO’s of
Maine’s big businesses have a direct line to Susan’s cell
phone, but the rest of us get to talk to someone in her office who just
sends out a form letter in response? Huh? Oh wait! She hates the average
American! Nevermind. She has one of her representatives coming to Lewiston
here soon. Guess what time he’ll be available to take questions about
government from the people? From 1-3pm! Yep, right in the middle of the
workday, you know, when hard working Mainers can’t take time off. But
hey! She only wants to take questions from millionaires anyway. They always
give her good feed back on how she’s doing. Spit.
