Night Gardening by Michael Palmer

A reader writes to complain
that there are no cellphones in my poems,
so here is one,

its body chrome,
its face a metallic blue.
It’s neither transmitting nor receiving.

A woman from Duluth requests
that I cease sending secret messages
to her in my poems.

This I will do forthwith.

And the blackbird at evening.

She says, You have misrepresented the river
there where it turns

by the holm oak and the bed
of winter hyacinths.

David Bowen: Helping Managers Manage

David Bowen was a country boy from a conservative home in the Central Valley, married to his high school sweetheart and with a young child when he arrived at UC Berkeley in 1967 to pursue a doctoral degree. It was the Summer of Love, Cal was the hotbed of student protests and hippies were everywhere. He recalls taking a final exam when a tear gas canister was tossed in the window, driving students out of the classroom.
