I've been a bad blogger recently. O well.
I know Paul Guest's secret. Hint: Pasties.
Kate Greenstreet's first book interviews are freaking great. Simmons B. Buntin is the latest poet in her series. Simmons mentions me near the end. I come off sounding like a total bitch. Yeah!
Casa Grande now has its own hipster coffee shop. The end is near. Though the chai latte is not bad.
Paula, why don't you email me?
First Night by Richard Tayson.
Currently reading:
A Mnemonic for Desire: Steve Mueske
What to Eat, What to Drink, What to Leave for Poison by Camille T. Dungy
And no, Peter. That's not Rigoberto on the cover of his latest book. The guy on the cover is his gardener. His name is John Olivares Espinoza.

Oh, oh! Here comes the wisecracks. I don't know if that's a bad or good thing. I guess that's a good thing if I've never met you and you get the joke--then you've read my work! But if I know you, then I feel like I'm in a jr. high school yard. "Quit making fun of me, guys!"

Charlie's right: I'm going to kill you Eduardo before you publish your book. Then I'll have Arte Publico publish it.

If Rigo had a gardner, I'm sure he'd be white. My brother had a white gardner. We'd sit and sip rum and cokes by the living room window and watch him--'cause we never thought we'd see a white gardner work for a Mexican. We did a better job.

What is "ROFL"?

For the record, the guy on the cover, that's The Tick's Mexican sidekick--Arturo. Let's see who gets that one.

I'm slacking off reading blogs, Eduardo. I had to laugh at this also, sorry to John. I wish there was someone as funny as you working at my library now.
