Stan Rice,
Poet and Painter,
Is Dead at 60…

New York Times

“This world is not conclusion;
A sequel stands beyond….”

Emily Dickinson (See yesterday’s notes.)

And the hair of my flesh stood up (Job 4:15).
The emotional quality of the moment is
The religious experience of the atheist.
This is Day Three.
Ezra Pound makes me sit
Under the gold painted equestrian statue
At Central Park South and 5th.

— Stan Rice, “Doing Being” (See yesterday’s notes.)

Stan Rice died on Monday.
Today is Wednesday. 
This is Day Three

15  Then a spirit passed before my face;

the hair of my flesh stood up:
16  it stood still,

but I could not discern the form thereof:
an image was before mine eyes,
there was silence, and I heard a voice, saying,
17  Shall mortal man be more just than God?

Shall a man be more pure than his Maker?


  1. Long live Stan!

  2. Do you think I could possibly have the code to put the same song (sinatra) on my xanga? I have been trying to put music up for the longest time and I cannot for the life of me figure it out. It would be a huge help. Thank you.
