Jim Cory tells me that James Franco is playing another poet on screen -- Hart Crane.

here's my last encounter:

& for the record here's a photo I took of the statue's dedication in front of the library.

that gets my attention. franco is a wonderful actor, but somehow the movie version of the 1st amendment trial on allen ginsberg's HOWL doesn't interest me at all. hart crane, however, does. perhaps it has more to do with crane being a foundational poet for me. even if i've not read him in years and his sound is rather thump-thump heavy, crane was the 1st poet i encountered that took adverts and pop culture as part of his writing landscapes and for me that has made all the difference. plus he was one wild , crazy dude. that should make good screen time. i hope.
