Helped Chris S. move into the Creamery. (poet & shit hot drummer) Dillon Westbrook provided the truck (Chevy s-10). Hadn't seen Dillon since his days at West Coast Girls' College. Talked with Chris a little about Barrett Watten, who I'm discovering in the wake of the Juliana comment. What makes Watten L to the A to the N to the GUAGE, exactly? seriously. Halfway through Watten's Progress. 15 lines to each page. Each page divided into 5 line stanzas that end with ". . ." implying a further discussion. So far, I like the work, as some of it resonates with concerns I have with poetry some 24 years after its writing (text written in Oakland 1982-3; published 1985).
