Similarly, The Ha-Ha, the latest offering from poet David Kirby, is both an exploration of the ways in which the mind invites chaos yet keeps it at a distance and an apologia for humor, reflecting Irish poet Patrick Kavanaghs observation that tragedy is merely underdeveloped comedy.

Embracing wit, wide-ranging scholarship, and an equal love of travel as well as the pleasures of home, The Ha-Ha depicts comedy as a radical form of intelligence, a way of thinking that just happens to be noisy and rumbustious.We are staying with Barbaras parents on Oahu, and the first night were there, I notice an angry-looking man is staring at meout of the neighbors upstairs window and mumbling something, but the second night I realize that its that poster of Bo Diddleyfrom the famous Port Arthur concert, and theres a phone wirein front of his face that bobs up and down when the trade winds blow,which they do constantly, making it seem as though Mr.
