Dear Brian:
Firstly, yesterday after you said "We Are Family" made you wanna get up and dance  - and you recalled Willie Stargel ("Papa" - Pop's Chicken on the Hill) singing it in the locker-room, I could not get that song out of my head for like an hour!  Gorwing-up a Bucco fan and sitting in the Allegheny Club for most games - wanting to be out in the stands w/ "the people"...........
Secondly, not all Italians are hairy and have hairy backs. I have little hair on my arms - my chest is hairy but not way hairy, it just has an X on the chest and then a little "love trail"..........
I do not have to wax or shave my back before going to the Country Club.
Third, you know, poetry does get a crappy wrap but that's most likely all poetry sucks and is crappy (due to publish or perish academics who "cut" the real thing like a cheap cherry in good small batch Kentucky bourbon whiskey - straight, no chaser)............ The best American poet is most likely not well known by public consciousness (the media). Just as the best guitar player in America is most likely some old black guy sitting and jamming by himself - for himself - in some dirty, filthy basement in Pittsburgh somewhere.
Cheers, Old Sport!
