Sikkim Slides, 2hrs north

Novice Monks, Lachung Sikkim

Big news from the Hudson Supermarket (Circa Trade home):

Slideshows on the big, blank walls of possibility.

A small venue for the backlog of photos that live on my computer. Friday nights, Hudson Supermarket (310 Warren Street), beginning this spring:

Courtney Pyle/Circa Trade photos (Sikkim, Darjeeling, Bulgaria, Uruguay, Siem Reap...)

And music by Haylie Ellis (of Collette).

Imagine an event...

Flying Lesson

Over a tray of spent plates, I confessed
to the college president my plans to go East,
to New York, which I'd not really seen,
though it seemed the right place
for a sophomore as sullen and restless
as I had become on that merciless
Midwestern plain. He slowly stroked
a thick cup and described the nights
when, a theology teacher in Boston, he'd fly
a tiny plane alone out over the ocean,
each time pressing farther into the dark
until the last moment, when he'd turn
toward the coast's bright spine, how he loved
the way the city glittered beneath him
as he glided gracefully toward it,
engine gasping, fuel needle dead on empty,
the way sweat dampened the back of his neck
when he climbed from the cockpit, giddy.
Buttoned up in my cardigan, young, willing
to lose everything, how could I see generosity
or warning? But now that I'm out here,
his advice comes so clear: fling yourself
farther, and a bit farther each time,
but darling, don't drop.
