    omg so today 1 of my favorite poets & people trisha low posted a link to something so INCREDIBLE !!! the text of the poem “love song” which i had otherwise never seen before & thought was unppublished.  it appears in tom raworth’s infolio, a publication recently archived on jacket2 through the continued incredible efforts of danny snelson & his staff.  much love to everybody for making my day!
