There are so many things that I want to say, or ask, or do in response to Whitman. I guess the best place to start tonight is that I’m still trying to place Whitman in the scheme of religion–in his own personal, in the Christian, and in others. I  know we’ve gone over it extensively, but especially in poems like “Whoever You are Holding Me Now in Hand,” where I find places so identical to scripture, I find myself marveling at how closely Walt must have looked at others’ spirituality. Okay. Good night, all. I have a lot to think about.
