Bernadette Mayer reads from the Sonnets: Taking the Humbler Path for Ron Padgett


“TAKING THE HUMBLER PATH”

for Ron Padgett

Was excellent advice from Ron
In a dream
I fell
We were walking in the rush hour
Got pushed into a snowbank
By a man in a Bentley
&climbingoveritIfellinlikeGreek&Latin
Scared at first I’d lose the bottom
But now I can get the Five Good Cookies
To eat and compare with the
The Five Sweet Cupcakes
I wanted in the first place
From the origins of the alphabets of the world

So, think twice
