Don Riggs is dynamic on video here for his book party for Bilateral Asymmetry, his first bound collection of sonnets. They are selected from his morning's work, the sonnet he writes daily before he does anything else. When you have a spare thirty minutes, watch until the end to see Dr. Riggs perform his signature closing poem, "Dialogue of the Hands." I happily received my inscribed copy of the book earlier this week.

I remember once, working as a packer in this lighting fixture company, one of the packers suddenly said: “I’ll never be free!”
One of the bosses was walking by (his name was Morrie) and he let out this delicious cackle of a laugh, enjoying the fact that this fellow was trapped for life.
So, the luck I finally had in getting out of those places, no matter how long it took, has given me a kind of joy, the jolly joy of the miracle. I now write from an old mind and an old body, long beyond the time when most men would ever think of continuing such a thing, but since I started so late I owe it to myself to continue, and when the words begin to falter and I must be helped up stairways and I can no longer tell a bluebird from a paperclip, I still feel that something in me is going to remember (no matter how far I’m gone) how I’ve come through the murder and the mess and the moil, to at least a generous way to die.
