IN SANTA FE, JUST ONE POET CAME TO MIND

While in Santa Fe, this distribution reflects my mental state:

I thought of:

Native American Pottery 60% of the time

Green chili 30% of the time

The pain in the butts in my family 3% of the time

Other matters 7% of the time

Which is to say, only one poet came to mind during this trip and that's cause he's Santa Fe's Poet Laureate: Arthur Sze.

UPDATE: I'm senile -- I did have occasion while in Santa Fe to think of three other poets: Thomas Fink, Mei-mei Berssenbrugge & Mark Young.
