My 23rd post was on January 30, 2005: Happy Birthday, Richard Brautigan. Brautigan is one of my favorite poets, a bohemian who bridged the beat generation and the hippie generation. The 5th sentence in my post about him was this:
Brautigan could mix together the absurd and the profound in a single poem, or in a single short prose-poem, which is what many of the chapters in his novels actually are. (I like to think my poem Gnostic Cat shows some of his influence.)
OK, those were the 5th and 6th sentences, but I couldn't very well omit the reference to my mystical cat, could I???
