Ugh -- Friedlander linebreaks

Blogger screwed up the linebreaks below. They are not flush against the left, but staggered inwards. How do I fix that? Where is Ron Silliman when I need him?

I worry that HTML will eventually destroy all verse that deviates from the left margin.

You need to have a code version of a blank space for every second blank space in a line -- & n b s p ; but without the spaces I've left between them now.

And I'm still in Chester County, Maggie. You're the one who ran off to seek fame & fortune,

Hey, it works!

Let me try:

Where are Cecil Taylor and Kamau Brathwaite when you need them?

Maggie, I'd be curious to know what Shkspr you'll be looking at in your run up to Melville. Maybe you could post it on Lucipo so to facilitate a Durhamwide Melville frenzy in the fall.

Goddamn, I love Melville and Ron Silliman.

if you really mean that, Ken, then I look forward to the fruits of your summer spent rewriting Moby Dick as a series of questions, Pequod Debris, anyone? Or maybe Bartelby by way of the Fibonacci sequence?

Hmm, I was thinking a sort of analog type decay sequence that would slowly winnow letters out of the book until all that was left were a few lone letters drifting in the great expanse of white space....

Or something.
