Congratulations, William. My guess is that the cover painting is by Arshile Gorky, so you're in very good company. (And so is he.)

What poems from "The Painting of You" are included?

William Michaelian said...

“Setting the Clock” and “Noah.” Right you are on Arshile Gorky: Study for the Liver is the Cock’s Comb. Thanks, Kevin.

Well deserved, William! I love anthologies that place a poet one already loves in a new and illuminating context....

William Michaelian said...

Thanks very much, Joe. I’m still intrigued by the blank space after “1956- ” under my name. That in itself is strangely illuminating....

Paul L. Martin said...

Congratulations, William. Blogs are wonderful, but print is better. Well deserved and long overdue.

William Michaelian said...

Books to hold in our hands, friends to hold in our hearts. Thanks, Paul.

Elizabeth Anderson said...

Indeed William. I've been away too long. The page looks amazing. There's something about seeing words on a page ... beautiful.

William Michaelian said...

Like a well-lined face, Elizabeth, the page endures. Thanks for being here.

May I (belatedly) add my congratulations as well, William! I love the clock poem.

William Michaelian said...

Thanks, Annie!

NEAT !

I like that "Our triumph is to be alone."

something heroic about it....

we had two Seth Thomas clocks one was a brown -wood mantel clock
the other hung in the grocery store round big numerals

I think that they called it a post-office clock or a train-station clock.

your mother's clock must have been a wind-up one ?


William Michaelian said...

Thanks, Ed. We’re still using the clock. I wind it every three days or so. It has a separate gear to wind for the chime. When my mother was a little girl (she’s ninety now), the clock was on her grandmother’s (born 1859) kitchen wall.
