I'm still in the city. I'm sitting in an internet cafe right now.
On Thursday I swear I sat across from Christian from Project Runway on th F-Train! I know it was him. He was wearing a hat so his trademark crazy hair was underwraps. I smiled at him and he smiled back. I know he knew that a fellow queen recognized him.
So far I've bought these books:
Cecily Parks, Field Folly Snow
Ciaran Berry, The Sphere of Birds
Reginald Shepherd, Otherhood
Henri Cole, Blackbird and Wolf
Juan Felipe Herrera, 187 Reasons Mexicanos Can’t Cross the Border: Undocuments 1971-2007
and the latest issue of American Poetr Review
I love walking in the city. I like to sit in cafes and sip my coffee. I like to guy watch. I like to scribble in my notebook.
I flipped through Mark Doty's new and selected Fire to Fire and was shocked to see that he only included TWO poems from his first book in the book. Wow.
