Over at NewPages, Sima Rabinowitz reviews the Autumn/Winter issue of The Journal and talks a little bit about my poem "Homonymous Bosch Adds a Saloon-Door Hinge." My name is also mentioned as being "immediately recognizable," which whoa, that is true only to my mother. Actually not even to my mother, who has five children and never got the right name on the first try. Most often a call to the dinner table sounded something like ChristrishpaulPATRICIA. I have many times been called by a dog's name. This is fine when your dog is named, like, Elizabeth. It is not fine when your dogs are named Naugie and Tat.
