Awakened at 3 in the morning by college students shouting football plays to each other in the street. Am I really going to live in college towns for the rest of my life?

Steve Evans writes to remind me that "A-9" is a canzone in the spirit of Cavalcanti, which of course means it's refracted through Pound, and not a sonnet sequence ("A-7" is a sonnet sequence). He also pointed me to the course log of a class he's teaching where they're taking on Stein, Williams, and Zukofsky: ""A"-7 as diabolic machine for recirculation of materials encountered in first six movements. "A"-24 as a similar proposition at a much larger scale." Interesting stuff. (Is it "A-9" or "A"-9? I've seen it both ways.)
