* Mark Scroggins The Poem of a Life: a Biography of Louis Zukofsky. Oh that Pound was such a bad boy.

Went for a walk down (appropriately) Walker Valley Rd., and saw lots of tiny mushrooms. Boletes, Bluets (maybe), Russulas (maybe), little umbrella-shaped things, little round platter-shaped things.

Ate at Betty’s Burgers, and had their “Tracks in the Grass” with “Special Lube” and sweet potato fries. Wonderful.
