FROM MY MANUSCRIPT THE SPIRIT OF THE BATHTUB. POEMS WRITTEN WHILE LIVING IN SOUTH KOREA, POLAND, TURKEY, AND THE U.K. THIS IS THE FIRST POEM. IT IS CALLED BATHTUB 1. SO FAR THERE ARE 60 BATHTUBS. I THINK I WILL DO MORE BATHTUB POEMS WHEN I GO TO POLAND NEXT WEEK. I THINK 7–75 BATHTUBS WOULD BE GOOD. BUT ALSO THINKING I MIGHT JUST CONTINUE WITH BATHTUB POEMS FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. MAYBE.
