  1. Good to see that God’s sweeter creatures have made you a more humble man.

  2. A photographer friend sent me your link

    I wanted you to know I’m addicted. Also wanted to let you know that during NaPoMo (National Poetry Writing Month) I led a writing group and for our last poem of the month — I chose your photographs from India’s Sunderbans for inspiration for the group. The photos moved people to write some great shit.

  3. lisa, if you have a video of that, you wouldn’t believe how curious i am. poetry and canepari have been known to disagree. on the other hand, trainwrecks and canepari seem to go hand in hand.

  4. what is a poem if not a good trainwreck right? —
    something you don’t really want to see but can’t pull away from.

    it’s a virtual group — with members from all over the world. i’ll ask to see if they’d let me share.

    Here are three of mine (keeping in mind NaPoMo is about writing poem no matter how bad –without editing — one every day of the month, she says re-reading them now hesitantly).

    A few of us wrote several days of canepari, actually. People really liked the camel men too. Several camel men poems.

    April 27th Sunderbans 1

    Maybe the child’s mother calls her Moongphali.
    Maybe the tiger is crouched in the grass.
    Maybe Moongphali’s mother told her to roll up like a peanut.

    Maybe all our lives are as dangerous

    as a mother and daughter’s netting prawns in the tigered shadows of the Sunderbans.

    Sunderbans 2 April 28

    Is Zackary Canepari cold like the snap of his camera lens — steely like a bullet to a maimed horse?

    If together we saw the pocked scars left by tiger jaws
    or blinded ourselves with the broken shafts of sunset

    would we need to fuck ourselves sweaty
    to forget the pain of such terrible beauty?

    a torn elegy of images, April 30

    Weren’t we all small brown children wrapped
    in swathes of pink and blue
    just yesterday

    then running barefoot on the dirt street
    playing our brand of cricket —
    remembering to loose our dreams

    I will always follow you

    inside the heads of animals —
    or all the way to Normandy

    don’t leave me

    alone to wonder of the angels swirled in your smoke.
    Did you catch the falling man?
    When Jade went missing — all green faded from view.

    There is so much more

    I will always follow you
    like a honey collector to the forest —
    where when we rest

    and forget about wrestling tigers
    we’ll instead weave wreathes of baby’s breath
    to crown their majestic heads.

  9. After about one and half bottle, sueddnly my HAIR STOPPED FALLING!!! COMPLETELY!! It used to be 100-200 hairs everyday and now I have to look very closely on my towel or in the bathtub to find just 1 or 2. My whole family is surprised after seeing the results.Planning to buy IHT9 Shampoo (Again), IHT9 Conditioner (First time) and IHT9 HAIR OIL / HENNA HAIR OIL (First time - Confusing. Which one or both of these to use on a regular basis). Kudos to Lass Cosmetics for such an excellent product!!
