awp bits

so i'm not going to awp this year. it sucks! i'm going to miss seeing a lot of you. not all of you. some of you i don't like.
*
oh the crazy folks! i love going to awp because it's full of crazy writers. CRAZY! crazy, crazy, crazy.
*
i'm going to miss the insecurities and nervousness.
*
i'm going to miss picking up this book. though i've told a friend that he needs (please!) to pick me up a copy. i don't want anything else from awp. just a copy of this book.
*
i'm going to miss chatting with mfa students. i love doing that! i'm always so curious about their writing, their programs, their plans for post-mfa life.
*
i'm going to miss the ONE POEM FESTIVAL.
*
i'm going to miss some of my favorite bloggers: c. dale, corn shake, oliver, steve fellner, and crazy crazy reb.
*
i'm not going to miss collin kelley though.
*
i'm going to miss the terrible dancing at the "dance" parties. oh the humanity!
*
i'm going to miss meeting poets whose work i've enjoyed in journals or online.
*
i'm going to miss the star-struck.
*
i'm going to miss the book fair.
*
sigh.

I'm going to miss it all too. Maybe we can just post fake AWP moments together...as if we were really there.

Damn, you're going to miss the off-site reading I organized called "The Trouble with Eduardo."
