The Confetti Will Rise Again

Click here to visit Puppy Flowers, where you will find poems by lots of nice folks including Shanna 'n me. The poems are from the Big Confetti project, but there are a couple here that were not in the book, so it will be exciting whether you have or you haven't...you know!

Maureen

was up at No Tell Motel. Jilly Dybka is up now, and you can find Maureen's stuff and more in their archive.

I had a reg'lar

Queens adventure tonight with Marion & Michael, complete with a collaborative poem! I'll tell you all about it in the morning. For now I will watch Dirty Harry 2: Magnum Force.

You may not know

(I didn't) but there is POETRY in CANADA! Poets like
George Murray and Sina Queyras will be reading at Frequency this season.

If you or someone you know would like to read at Frequency, come by the Four Faced Liar and tell me so!

mmwah!

Brand New Poem

Things That I’ve Learned From You and From My Radio

If I ever plan to motor West,
I think I’ll travel your way;

your barely-perceptible movements
have been inspirational
as you’ve dragged yourself with your lips
across my kitchen floor.

You make catatonia
look as comfortable and smooth
as a motor-coach.

On the other hand,
if there IS another hand,
I could travel the
“highways and byways”
of the out-of-body:

blow through Weird Nevada
on a late-night airwave,
waving cheerfully
at sleeping eyelids.

I just don't know what to say about

FAT CLOONS! Ben, TJ, and I are beside ourselves.

The Durge Report

From Jaime Corbacho, Sybil is "dating a guy with the last name Buck as in, "What the buck?" or"Buck-nekkid.""

Check out this

cool photo that new friend Sina took at the AB reading last monday. That's Kazim, Marion, and moi, which is French for ME, Shafer Hall.
