Contents
Sleepless nights of marine life ; I. When all your friends are sea urchins -- Breakfast -- "Everything tastes better with bacon," -- Some benefits of chewing -- Patrician pleasures -- The haberdashery of the missing E -- The baby with a top hat & cigar -- Toward some leaning near the radio & those waves -- To a friend in a strange city -- If you can read this, ; II. Pool rules -- At the king's party -- This was where it was -- On several desires & entreaties at once -- Gingiva -- Ode to my right tennis shoe in Montparnasse -- Dear Vallejo, -- Jules & moi -- Lifting spoons ; III. I remember driftwood -- What I liked best was the log flume &- -- Fragments for a surgeon -- This was Paris, France, and this then was now -- Here, even the dogs smoke -- Give me your hand -- In the salon of Madame Miklós Radnóti -- "I was a girl in Hungary" -- On a one-way street in Debrecen ; IV. You, unusual among fish, live in no aquaria -- Caffè Ristretto, with amnesia -- Every time you leave, the basil plant dies -- Nine lives in ten or eleven lines -- The Vesuvius, envious, -- Chaos is a verb here ; V. Who will provide me with a copious fountain -- Toward that sweet nest where I remained, though parting -- Ah, at least delay by an hour or two your going forth -- I do no envy you, o holy angels -- Those stars whose light has been so impressed -- And just as you take solace -- To course across more kindly waters now -- While in my heart, I feel the sweetness of it yet -- Syrenka.
