monday bits

Congrats to Brandon Som for winning the Tupelo Press Snowbound Chapbook Award. The judge was Corn Shake! Brandon was one of the first poets I met at Arizona State. We talked about poetry; read each other's work. He's a sweet and bright man. I'm very happy for you, Brandon!
I finished a new poem last night. What to know the title? Okay! "Dishwasher Wanted."
I'm blogging from a Starbucks.
A review of Robert Krut's The Spider Sermons.
Listening to Neutral Milk Hotel's In the Aeroplane Over the Sea a lot these days. One of my favorite albums.
Where are all the handsome men? Usually this Starbucks is crawling with hot men but they're MIA today.
I love the photograph above. It was taken on the day of my niece's baptism. About three weeks ago. I just noticed that some white stuff is coating my tongue. Ha. It must be cake. The cake was so good, but I should know better: shut your mouth when someone is taking a photograph.

In the Aeroplane Over the Sea is a beautiful album.

I just had to testify.
