Of course, after you upgrade: Of course, after you upgrade from LP to CD, there will be hipsters lurking behind the scenes ready to convince you that your LP was really better so you should go back to the future and start the collection all over again.

What a striking tribute! You: What a striking tribute! You plunged deep into the essence of the poet with language equal to the greatness you described. From seeing "humanity in color" to telling "the world/ there is a mind at work", this homage to true talent glistens with gorgeous appreciation for the poet's natural and unpretentious gift as well as poetry's most important contribution to the world: It is art "not for praise,/ for contemplation."    Congratulations on this!

"Aquafir is not a tree." Love: "Aquafir is not a tree." Love that wit! A well-expressed report on our sweltering situation. And it's only June! God help us.

Join the club!  I think many: Join the club!  I think many of us feel that way, but are often too cowardly to admit it---like I was for decades.  Lots of things I couldn't admit---I couldn't even tell the first Great Love of my life how I felt, because I was afraid of societal disapproval or even persecution (such things were very common, in that time, in our small rural town).

I have been reading, as I do: I have been reading, as I do from time to time, about early Soviet history, particularly 1917-1918 (as Lady A mentioned in her comment), and also the early 20's---when the Bolshevik party almost lost all control due to the horrific state the entire country was in.  So your poem resonates between our current situation and theirs (and other times and places, I am sure). Their pandemics were starvation, industrial backwardness, and a party they could not fully trust.  We, too, have more than one pandemic:  not only Covid, but social unrest and two parties we cannot fully trust.  The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Effects of fasting somewhat: I don't know how to cope with myself. I am sorry for revealing a personal dilemma--- a time of admonishment and vulnerability.

Oh, don't do that.  You are: Oh, don't do that.  You are needed here, and elsewhere as well.
