Clearly I am going to have to do this on my own.
I'm literary and political. I think about right brain stuff with my left brain, and left brain stuff with my right. My high school aptitude test said I should be a philologist. I've smoked pot twice: once with Allen Ginsburg and once with pygmies in the Congo. I care about the way sentences are put together, the secrets to making a good paper airplane, and the fate of the seahorse. I sometimes wonder what line of poetry or prose I would get tattooed on me, were I the sort to do that sort of thing. Oh, and I have a daughter, adopted from China. The first time we met, I felt I had my whole life been a bell, and not known it until at that moment I was lifted and struck.
