Jargon 88.

"Once upon a time, people used to say, I'll tip you a stave and meant they'd sing you a song. When a friend heard this book would soon be out she exclaimed, 'I'm so glad...but will I understand it?' 'They're just marks on paper,' I said, meaning, it now dawns on me, these poems are staves, parts of a song. And this book is a calendar of Mondays whose weeks are legends to explain what has captured my imagination, the wood, ice, sleep, sunlight, Valentines, a brother, a name..." -Thomas Meyer
