the poem "dead" appeared in Bone Palace Ballet (1997) and also in OntheBus 19/20 (2005). Compare the two versions. I'll bet the editor of OntheBus Jack Grapes was working from an earlier manuscript submission, because note what has been removed from the Bone Palace Ballet version. Do we have a manuscript of the poem?

Do we have a manuscript of the poem?
Maybe. Not on the site yet though.

But if we did, you'd likely see that the manuscript matched the ON THE BUS version.

Nothing new here, unfortunately.
Any clue to who 'the Professor' was, Sounds as though he wrote a pretty good novel(!).
"..his words danced with laughter and mockery, gamble."
Any tips?
