mon semblable - mon frère!  
My sister had a terrible 24-hour stomach bug on Sunday, and my brother woke up with it today. I feel like it's inevitable that I'll get it now. Last time I threw up was when I had that nasty norovirus back in 2006. It only lasted one hellish day, though.

Yesterday I felt the urge to read poetry. So I went to the county library (for the first time since I was in 7th grade) and checked out 8 books. I've put my Dostoevsky novel aside for the week and will exclusively read poems. I've got Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet next to me now (though that's more prose poetry), and I think I'll read some Charles Bukowski later. I've never read any of his work, so it'll be interesting. And because I love him dearly, Baudelaire is on my nightstand.

Also, today is my dad's birthday. Too bad it's such a sick house.

I have to say, read some Gwen Harwood - she is my favourite poet (along with Plath, but I'm sure you've read Plath before). Also Stephen Crane - love love LOVE Stephen Crane.

I will check out Harwood and Crane! Thanks. And I also go a collection of Plath poems from the library since it's been so long since I've read any of her work.
