let it be written. i. am an ass.


everyone's talking about their clusters. i'm on #5, hambone, which must have something to do with the literary magazine founded by nathaniel mackey (b. 1947) or perhaps blues musician hambone willie newbern (a hot-tempered man who eventually was beaten to death in a prison brawl in1947) or more likely the definition 'a greenhorn or amateur among itinerant musicians' as i am most assuredly that, here, and possibly some allusion to hamlet's bones; did these bones cost no more the breeding, but to play at loggats with 'em? mine ache to think on't.
