I expect nothing … pushing (as they say, but I'm no Sisyphus) 80 I try not to waste energy, especially mine. Coursera is a new word, to me. Words don't waste energy. Modern & Contemporary American Poetry? Sounds safe. Online? Sure. Saves gas. So it's turning out this course has taught me more than the New York Times Sunday Crossword; more than a Kindle of free classics; more than hanging out with my grandchildren; more than sitting around thinking, and writing, and wondering. So, I know I will think about my new friends, living and dead, long after this course ends. As Frank O'Hara says, Well … Well, what? Well, for instance, I expect this course is indelible.
